We have some wonderful architecture in Perth and Fremantle – both old and new.

This lovely little hardcover book is a delightful record of 50 of our iconic buildings, from Fremantle Prison (completed 1859) right up to the Perth Stadium (2017) and the Perth Children’s Hospital (2018). There are houses, offices, government buildings, entertainment buldings – a fabulous selection.

There are fabulous drawings of the buildings, an account of the history and purpose of each building, and notes about the architect, the cost of construction, the completion date, and the architectural style.
