Here's a collection of more recent shots of Perth's older architecture from flickr. Some of these are my own, which you can view the larger images from here and here. I've hyperlinked other people's shots back to their flickr page.

Poor Perth.. it lost so much. Fremantle is the city's saving grace, probably one of the best preserved Edwardian/Victorian cities in the country.

the city has such an interesting social history too... if only more of the fine old buildings had been retained.

Who in perth agrees with me, that the place in the middle of that image, the brown and white old style building, while inside it, it reminds you of Harry Potter haha.

Everytime I walk through it while in the city, I feel like im in a Harry Potter movie:)

How anyone in their right mind could demolish such a beautiful building is beyond me.

Its not just AMP Chambers in this photo, but all the other surrounding buildings (inc. Viking House) have been pulled down.
