Fremantle Visitors Centre: Social History through Waymarking

Fremantle Visitors Centre - Tourist Information Centres - Visitor Centres

A little change in direction for my blog, which has been rather dormant for a long time. I am going to fire it back up, finish off some of the bicycling posts from the past whilst at the same time expanding its focus to include a little bit more photography and particular my interest in documenting social history of the Fremantle area in particular.

This photograph is part of my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of http://waymarking.com.

Whilst this is a mundane subject and an even more mundane photo it does capture a slice of social history.  The City of Fremantle is commencing the redevelopment of Kings Square and in the near future this long-standing visitors centre will be no more and so this photo will stand as a reminder of what was once but is no more.

Details of the redevelopment can be found on the City of Fremantle website.

    Good to see you back. I lived in Freo back in the second half of the 90’s. I loved living there but friends in Perth now tell me it’s not what it used to be. I think they were talking about the night life aspect.

    Excellent idea Andrew: combining your photographic skills, local knowledge and possible aspects of Freo by bicycle. Shall follow with interest.

Please share your thoughts ...
