london transport

Transportation of convicts from London to Australia provided a solution to prison overcrowding and established a British colony. This had a devastating effect on the life of indigenous Australians.

The woodcut draws on the style and iconography of Australian artists to depict the departure point for transports. The Thames snakes from Tower Bridge in the west, past the Isle of Dogs and the Millennium Dome at Greenwich
