Old St. Andrews



Crime and Punishment



Taking a look at the various transgressions of the law, serious and not so serious, over the years is certainly an entertaining and instructive window on ordinary town life, but I also wanted to include just about everything that relates to the adminstration of justice in St. Andrews--from ordinary note of jail and courthouse improvements, to curious cases at the courthouse, legal precendent, law and by-laws under the old Loyalist magistrates, to more dramatic events such as arson, murder, jailbreaks and executions. Through this one window so many others are opened to the curious viewer.
