Gaol photograph, 1920

This photo was taken in 1920 soon after the end of Falleni's trial. She was 45 years old and at the begining of her life sentence. A short haired Falleni could easily pass for a man by the looks of this image. There are references in her trial to the accident that lead to Falleni losing her little finger (the accident occured between 1917 and 1920). Another gaol photo was taken eight years later. From NRS 2496 [3/6006 p.499, 1920], State Reformatory for Women, Photo description books.
