North Perth Local, with funding from the City of Vincent is recognising and celebrating the people who make our place through a new community initiative called People of North Perth.
We will profile a total of 10 people who are enriching the life of our local area in many different ways. Each candidate will video interviewed by a journalist and professionally photographed with their stories featured on this website and in other places in North Perth.
The North Perth Walk takes you on a self-guided historical walking tour of the North Perth Town Centre. The 16 sites portray a period in time from the dawn of the 20th century to 1950s, when the town centre we recognise today was first laid out.
Visiting sites in Angove, Albert, View and Fitzgerald Streets, we take a tour of the early life of the suburb by investigating some of the places that once stood here and in many cases remain today. It does not attempt to portray a complete history of the area, but is a snapshot of a period that shaped the North Perth we know today.
The North Perth Walk is an initiative of North Perth Local created with funding of the City of Vincent. We would like to thank the City of Vincent’s Local History Centre for their contribution, in particular Senior Librarian Julie Davidson.
