Really old Perth



Looking down the Trc 1863 from about where the Barracks arch is now.




Collegiate School in 1868, ten years after it's founding. This school has since moved and is now known as Hale School, also making it WA's oldest school. The building survives today as Cloisters Square on St Georges Terrace.




Early Swan Brewery




An old Canning bridge.




Looking down Trc corner of William. Bankwest Tower would be on left corner. Early 1900's?




View from KP late 1920's



View from KP 1940's




Opening of the Narrows Bridge on 13th November 1959. Kings Park is in the background.

Yeah I thought about that but seeing that it's a unique theme, I thought maybe a new thread. Can you see 1st pic?

yeah, I got it now I think. Can you see the pics in the first post now.

I was trying to link from google images for the first time. Was hard to test due to the caching of the browser.

Pictures of old Perth make me sad. It's such a pity they filled in Mounts Bay, what the hell were those idiots thinking.

I just realised the Narrows Bridge will be 50 years old next November. I wonder if anything special will mark the anniversary. Hopefully they announce some sort of improvement to mark the occasion.

this is the closest we can get to time travel. old pics are the best. if only colour and video had been invented earlier.

i often think how lucky people are who may live in 100 years that get to see historical things in full motion colour, like september 11, theyll get to see every detail.

Awesome pics, I love old pics of Perth. Look mainroads had the right idea in 1959! I didn't realise the roundabout entrance to the freeway on mounts bay road is an original.
