Ned Kelly’s Armour




Two years ago we visited Glenrowan in Victoria which is famous for bushranger Ned Kelly’s last stand against the police who had been chasing him and his gang for many months. A blacksmith in the town makes replica suits of armour so I am posting photographs for our Grade Six students who will be travelling to Canberra soon and will see Australian artist Sidney Nolan’s “Ned Kelly series” of  paintings at our National Gallery. The old photograph is  of the Glenrowan Railway Station  and was taken during Ned Kelly’s lifetime. The cottage on the left is typical of the timber homes of the day.
