You may remember a few weeks back I wrote about some of the punishments meted out to local villains and I mentioned the stocks.

It was 150 years ago this year that the last set of stocks, located outside the police station in Ordnance Row, Portsea, was removed.

More than likely chopped up and used as firewood, they would have been a useful addition to the museum.
