I have a sort of series to get through with you, on these Port Arthur photos. The different ruins throughout the site are amazing and a testament to the convicts that built them.
Built between 1836 and 37 the Convict Church overlooks the settlement and would accommodate over 1000. Because the Church was built for the convicts from many denominations to attend, it was never consecrated. Throughout the site at Port Arthur it is made very clear that the authorities worked hard to instil religion amongst it’s convicts.
Once again, these are just a few pictures of the beautiful structure that were taken on Andi’s camera phone and I have played around with. I hope you enjoy! Of course, if you’re interested, you can view the Port Arthur Historic (web)Site here. And you can view my last post on The Penitentiary here.
