Fremantle Prison ~ Perth Australia "Fremantle Prison was built as a convict barracks in the 19th century and remained in continual use until 1991. The Prison was a place of hangings, floggings, dramatic convict escapes and prisoner riots.   The first convict transport sailed into Fremantle Harbour in 1850. Built by convict labour between 1852 and 1859 using limestone quarried on the site. The first prisoners moved into the main cell block in 1855."
