Campbell Street Gaol

H.M. Gaol Hobart or Campbell Street Gaol, a former Australian maximum security prison for males and females, is located in Hobart, Tasmania. Built by convict labour, the gaol operated between 1821 until the early 1960s. In 1961, male inmates were transferred to the H.M. Risdon Prison and in 1963, female inmates were transferred to the Risdon Women's Prison.

Designed in the Georgian Renaissance architectural style by John Lee Archer, the gaol is now managed by the National Trust of Australia (Tasmania) as a historic site.

Famous quotes containing the words campbell and/or street:

    What millions died that Caesar might be great!
    —Thomas Campbell (1777–1844)

    And men left down their work and came,
    And women with petticoats coloured like flame.
    And little bare feet that were blue with cold,
    Went dancing back to the age of gold,
    And all the world went gay, went gay,
    For half an hour in the street to-day.
    “Seumas” “O’Sullivan” (1879–1958)
