CDV of Sergeant Steele, holding his double barrel shot gun which was used in the capture of the notorious Kelly Gang, 1880. The CDV is by W.E. Banks, Murphy Street, Wangaratta. Fine In Steel’s own account, “ I therefore thought he had armor on, and determined to have a close shot at him. I ran towards him, and when within 10 yards he turned round and fired at me. I fired then at his legs and he staggered, but still tried to fire at me. I then fired the second barrel at his legs. We were in the open and he fell and cried, 'I'm done, I'm done.' I ran up to him then, and he turned savagely and tried to shoot me, but I pushed the revolver down. I had a great scuffle with him, but others ran up and his shots had no effect.” Kelly was hanged on November 11, 1880, in the Old Melbourne Goal.
