VPRS 4965 Consignment P0 Unit 4 Item 52 Record 1 Document: Listings of police stations where photos of Kelly were sent

29/10/1878

Overview

This list, compiled by the Detectives Office in Melbourne, is dated three days after the Stringy Bark Creek murders. It gives detail of the towns where photos of Ned Kelly were sent. The distribution of these lists was not restricted to Victoria’s north-east and were sent out as far as Adelaide and Sydney. Three months later, another list was to emerge due to the December hold up of the Euroa bank. This time, the list contained the names of towns as far as Launceston and Brisbane.
