Edward "Ned" Kelly, 6/11/1855 - 11/11/1880, considered to be merely a cold-blooded cop killer, others consider him to be a folk hero and symbol of Irish Australian resistance against the Anglo-Australian ruling class. After an incident at his home, police searched for him in the bush. After killing 3 policemen, the colony proclaimed Kelly a wanted outlaws. Kelly was captured on 6/28/1880, convicted of murder and hanged. This picture was taken the day before his execution.

The last photos of Ned Kelly were taken by the official Melbourne Gaol photographer, Charles Nettleton on November 10, 1880, the day before Ned’s execution. In this full-length study, Ned holds the cord attached to his leg irons to disguise the withering of his wounded left arm and rests a fist on his hip to mask a crippled hand.
