On Remand

 

This young girl had travelled up from London for a holiday in Scotland, whilst she was there some goods were stolen from the lodgings in which she was staying. She was accused with theft, even though there was no real evidence against her, and sent on remand to Inverary Jail to await the next travelling judge's session. She has been there two and a half months and the judge is not due for another three months. So during that time she is incarcerated in a small cell, spending her days picking Oakum and not being able to talk to many others there as most other inmates tend to speak Gaelic. If, as is probable, she is to be found guilty then the sentance will be transportation to Australia for seven years. Not being able to read or write there is no way she can let her family back in London know what is happening.

 

In a cell on the floor above Prisoner No. 6 spends his days in a similar fashion.

During the day the corridors are patrolled by the local warder.

I think I am very glad to live in the 21st century Les...
Les Auld: It does have its advantages Chris, thanks for the comment.
And not a super injunction in sight Les
Les Auld: Not a one Bill, thanks for the comment.
Three excellent pictures Les and the story to go with them is a bonus.
Les Auld: It does add colour Brian, thanks for the comment.
Beautiful photographs Les. The faces are wonderful. Thanks for the story, too- now I am feeling very disturbed at man's inhumanity to man- we are getting better aren't we?
Les Auld: Let us hope so Elizabeth, but I must admit to not being sure about it. Thanks for the comment.
