Women Prisoners in Australia

On January 26th at the Caboolture Historical Village's Australia Day event, I bought two things - one a book by David Hill  called 1788 The Brutal Truth of the First Fleet and  a white cap - which was on sale at a special price in the Prisons Museum of the Village.

The cap is what women prisoners wore in early Australian history.  See below.  It's rather cute, so I think I will arrange a costume so that I can work in the village in prison costume.

 


I wore my little white cap, and a white apron at the Village on Monday, and love it.  I really looked great wandering around the village.
