The Debtors' Door, Newgate Prison.
The door of the Debtors' Side, through which criminals were taken to the scaffold, was threefold. There was an outer door of solid iron, an iron-cased half-door and finally this, the iron-bound oak lattice door. All three doors appear to have been in use since the first public execution outside Newgate, in 1783, and were last used at the execution of Barrett in 1868. The prison was demolished in 1902.


1780 AD - 1800 AD
