A snap­shot of South Perth

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

PHO­TOS of fam­ily life, re­cre­ation and land­marks from the early days of South Perth are part of an ex­hi­bi­tion at Her­itage House.

The South Perth His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety has in­cluded 52 im­ages in the ex­hi­bi­tion, which is open on Fri­days be­tween 10am and 4pm, and Satur­day and Sun­days from 1pm to 4pm, un­til Septem­ber 30.

Many of the im­ages are be­ing shown for the first time in the gallery and are ex­pected to at­tract in­ter­est from lo­cal peo­ple in­ter­ested in his­tory.

So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Lynn O’Hara said the pho­to­graphs pro­vided the com­mu­nity with a valu­able in­sight into what life was like in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

“Our thanks to the City of South Perth for giv­ing us per­mis­sion to use some of the pho­to­graphs from its Pic­ture South Perth Col­lec­tion. To­gether with our own im­ages, we be­lieve this ex­hi­bi­tion is one of the most ex­cit­ing our mem­bers have pro­duced to date,” she said.

South Perth His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s John Maloney helped co-or­di­nate the his­toric ex­hi­bi­tion.
