Z Ward: Behind the Walls

Z Ward

Neither prison nor hospital, the 'criminal ward' of the former Glenside Mental Hospital occupies a unique place in South Australia's history. From the rare 'Ha Ha Wall' encircling the building to its striking 1880s polychromatic brickwork, the breathtaking architecture hides a sobering history of this important site.
