Are these prison photographs the final images of Australia's last convicts?

Western Australia was the last of the Australian colonies to receive transported convicts, with the last cohort arriving in Fremantle on the Hougoumont on 9 January 1868. In recent times there has been considerable research into the lives and fate of many of the Convicts transported to West Australia.

Swan Genealogy has identified 74 photographs of West Australian Convicts found in the 19th Century Convict Register (Cons 1156/R23), Fremantle Prison Registers (Cons 4173), and surviving Fremantle Prisoner photographs (Cons 4286) held at the State Records Office of Western Australia.

This publication contains these photographs and information contained within these volumes.
