Creating Perth Exhibition
An exhibition showcasing the many layers of Perth City and how our landscape has been shaped by change over time.
Creating Perth explores the ways visions of Perth – both compatible and contested – have shaped this place, revealing many layers of our city’s history. The exhibition features photos, paintings, maps, videos and stories from the State Library, State Records Office and loans from community.
Exciting images and artefacts featured in the exhibition include a six-metre reproduction of the 1892 cycloramic (panorama) of Perth drawn by architect John Stewart Jackson, an 1887 plan for reclaiming the foreshore for a cricket ground and public gardens, and a quilt “Balbuk’s Country – Unforseen Future”.”
