Fremantle Town Hall – just 137 years old!


Freo Today. 24 June 2024. The days getting a little longer again. And colder! But the Fremantle Town Hall stands bravely through at all. As Wikipedia records, ‘Fremantle Town Hall is a town hall located in the portside city of Fremantle, Western Australia, and situated on the corner of High, William and Adelaide Streets. The official opening, on 22 June 1887, coincided with the celebration of Queen Victoria’s Jubilee and it was formally named by the mayor, Daniel Keen Congdon and the state governor, Frederick Broome, as the Town and Jubilee Hall.’ So, just 137 years old! There are many angles to view it from, but we do like this one gathered by Jean Hudson the other day, glimpsing through the tree’s nearly leafless branches.
