Museum Book | Updated 10 months agoAuthor(s) Paul Longley Arthur and Geoffrey Bolton (eds.)
Format Paper Back
On a triangle of land at the mouth of the Swan River is Fremantle’s heritage district, the West End, recognised as one of the world’s best-preserved examples of a nineteenth-century port city and colonial townscape. Well known too for its exceptionally diverse multicultural community, Fremantle has long been a historical gateway to Australia for generations of migrants and visitors.
Voices from the West End provides both a wide-ranging overview and many new insights into the influences that have shaped Fremantle’s colourful history and heritage since colonial settlement in 1829.
