Prisoners arriving at Murray's Bay Harbour.
Prisoners, staff and visitors arrived at Murray’s Bay Harbour which is on the east coast of the Island. It consists of one breakwater and the quay, which was established within the area of the earliest landings on the Island. The harbour was built in historical phases and the first major works on it were completed during the World War 2 (WW2) period. It was enlarged after WW2. The high wall that blocks the view of Table Bay was built by prisoners.
