Sin City – crime and corruption in 20th century Sydney

25 May 2011

Welcome to Sin City.

This town beckons to the tough, the corrupt, the brokenhearted, some call it dark and tainted. Then there are those who call it home.

Crooked cops. Sexy Dames. Desperate vigilantes. Some are seeking revenge. Others lust and redemption. And then there are those hoping for a little of both.

A universe of unlikely and reluctant heroes still trying to do the right thing in a city that refuses to care.

Sin city exhibition SydneyThe Sin City exhibition currently showing at the Justice and Police Museum located at Circular Quay in the heart of Sydney city centre, is a hard-hitting exhibition highlighting the deep seeded history of Sydney’s grisly underworld from the 20 century.

Exposing all the key players such as Roger Rogerson, Lennie McPherson through to the much maligned George Freeman, Sin City has a huge collection of displays from old newspaper clippings to television footage dating back years uncovering the stories of the underworld.

A small charge is all it will cost to play your part in history as you wander through the dark alleys and jail cells that once held the infamous characters that will go down in history as a defining moment inSydney’s history.

*Sin City Exhibition is currently open to the general public until June 5 2011.
