Welcome to this week’s edition of Where’s Andrew? For those of you pining to know the answer to Friday’s clue, voila:
Clue: The pen is mightier than the gun . . . sometimes. Where am I?
Answer: State Library of Victoria, 328 Swanston Street, Melbourne.
The Jerelderie letter is perhaps the most famous document composed by Ned Kelly, Australia’s legendary outlaw.
The bushranger’s manifesto is one of many unique treasures held by the State Library of Victoria and the original is still clearly legible today, 131 years after it was written. My photo shows page 43–where Ned recounts how he was wrongfully arrested for riding a stolen horse. Visitors to the library can see sections of the document along with Ned’s original suit of makeshift armor that he wore in his final shoot-out with the police at Glenrowan. Just around the block is the Old Melbourne Gaol where Ned was hanged in 1880.
Congrats to @kevinhanson for guessing the correct answer. And now for today’s clue:
