Very early suburban development in Perth, Western Australia with interesting variety of architecture in the area, colourful history, strong local community awareness. Building - 1923 heritage building, originally an electrical sub-station. Became the Subiaco Museum in 1975, with five gallery spaces.
The scope is limited to the geographical area of the city of Subiaco, taking in the suburbs of Subiaco, Shenton Park, Jolimont and Daglish. However the scope is wide in terms of time and in its coverage of all aspects of local cultural history. Social change eg The "Gentrification" of former industrial areas is well documented in the Photographic collection.
