Ratepayers, Reds, and a "Rip Van Winkle Board"...

  • Who was the sneaky secretary who pocketed the Road Board's budget in 1902?
  • Why was the Communist Party so keen on more bus stops on Manning Road?
  • And just how does one become the Mayor of South Perth, Chairman of the Lotteries Commission and an unregistered bookmaker all at the same time?

Join the City's Local History Librarian as the Reflect series gets political (not at all endorsed by any party).
