On 29 June 1880, a day after the destruction of the Kelly Gang, the Victoria Police decided to display the body of Joe Byrne on the door of the Benalla lock-up. Photographer J.W. Lindt recorded his colleague Arthur Burman photographing the body. At the far left, press artist Julian Ashton has turned his back on the macabre spectacle. The previous night Ashton sketched Joe’s corpse onto a wooden tablet. The drawing was then engraved for reproduction in the 'Illustrated Australian News'.
