Fo­cus off footy for oval his­tory quest

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Nearyou -

SUBIACO Oval his­to­ri­ans are ap­peal­ing for me­mora­bilia, pho­to­graphs and in­for­ma­tion from past sport­ing and en­ter­tain­ment events not re­lated to Aus­tralian Rules Foot­ball. The City of Subiaco, WA Foot­ball Com­mis­sion (WAFC) and Prue Grif­fin from Hock­ing Her­itage Stu­dio have been com­pil­ing his­toric con­tent to tell the story of Subiaco Oval. Although the oval was “in­trin­si­cally tied” to AFL, Ms Grif­fin said the his­toric venue also hosted rugby, cricket, lacrosse, ath­let­ics and some of Perth’s big­gest mu­sic con­certs. “The ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing at Subiaco Oval has dramatically changed over the years since its in­cep­tion, and we would like to see or hear of the ways in which it has differed,” she said. Call Subiaco Mu­seum ser­vices co-or­di­na­tor Erica Boyne on 9237 9227 or email mu­seum@subiaco.wa.gov.au.
