Two Division: Boggo Road's Last Prison

‘Two Division’ contains the last surviving cellblocks of the larger Boggo Road prison complex that operated in Brisbane for over a century. After starting life in 1903 as a state-of-the-art prison for women, Two Division went on become one of the most notorious male prisons in Australian history before its enforced closure in 1989.

This publication provides a concise, information-packed history of this prison and its people, highlighting the unique qualities that make it such an important historical site.'

This book is an expanded update of the 'Last Prison Standing' publication from Inside History (2005).
