Cities

Femantle and Perth are my featured cities for this week’s challenge.

Like many coastal cities Fremantle is a combination of the original and modern building.

fremantle_0290Not as old as buildings in other countries I have visited…

however, considering Fremantle was settled around 1829 it is one of our older buildings.

 Back in Perth…

the new surrounds the old.

    • Do you know Kings College in Perth? MGW’s grandfather purchased the 110 acres of land and established the school. I would like to spend more time there as there is quite a portion of the family tree in Perth. Never met them. Would be nice to say hello. And Freo….what a great place to work.

      • It was a very different place back then, Woolly – to my mind, nicer. But there you go. 🙂
        And no, I know nothing of that college: not only is it down near Kwinana, but it wasn’t set up till the mid ’80s – well after I’d left Perth.

      • Not sure of anything M.R., my understanding was that s school was established long, long before MGW and I met MGW. In fact the family moved to Geelong before in pre fifties. Must check!

    • Boston is a place I would like to visit. Not sure if that will ever happen though. It is portrayed as a nice city, a combination of old and new, in movies, boooks and television shows.
