Historical Crime Map of Brisbane, 1859-1901

The key digital feature of the project is a nineteenth century interactive searchable map of Brisbane with a focus on 20 central streets, today’s Brisbane CBD. The map below is populated with an average of five occurrences per street. By clicking on the street and symbol of interest, zoom in to reveal details of events such as assaults, assaults on police/ resisting arrest, use of abusive language, larceny and miscellaneous offences, etc. — misdemeanours that are most representative of everyday life and interactions.
