History Alive: Captured Portraits of Crime 1870 – 1930

An award-winning NSW State Archives display exploring the startling and often tragic stories of NSW lawbreakers from 1870 to 1930 opens on Wednesday 3rd July at Orange City Library. Spanning 60 years, Captured explores the fates of men, women and children incarcerated in NSW gaols for crimes arising from desperation as often as vice.

Orange and District Historical Society has partnered with Orange City Library to bring you guest speaker Wendy Gallagher from NSW State Archives to talk about the display and how to research your family history when a criminal is involved. This is a free event and part of the Society’s History Alive series to be held on Wednesday 3rd July at 5.30pm. Please book online through Eventbrite.com or call the Library on 6393 8132. The display will be on show from Wednesday 3rd July to Friday 26th July.
