Secret tunnels & the Panopticon Principle.....
Fremantle for lunch..if you love old buildings with history Fremantle is a must visit. The Round House above is the oldest remaining building in WA, built in 1830/31 with private labour as it was built before convicts arrived on these wild shores. Designed using the Panopticon Principle with only eight cells it soon became inadequate and the Fremantle Prison (that's a whole new post) was built in the 1850's using convict labour. Below an archive image c1874 looking up from High St. and right, the same view c2013 yesterday :)
