In the 1920s and 30s, Sydney's criminal underworld was ruled by deadly women. Kate Leigh was one of the most feared of them all. She controlled much of the vice markets in Darlinghurst, Surry Hills, Paddington and Woolloomooloo. With her gang of razor-wielding thugs, she waged war against her nemesis, Tilly Devine, in an underworld conflict known as The Razor Wars. 

This t-shirt depicts Kate Leigh's Long Bay Gaol mugshot and just a few of the hundreds of colourful headlines in newspapers across Australia. 

Kate Leigh's infamy has made her a twentieth-century 'Ned Kelly' in the pantheon of Australia's most notorious criminals.

A black, well-fitting, quality cotton T-shirt.
