Join the City's Local History Librarian, Anthony Styan and find out just how globally relevant our little community of Manning really is.
Have you ever looked at your suburb from above? Why are the streets where they are? Is it all just an accident of geography?
As returned soldiers and refugees streamed into WA after the Second World War, authorities began to look at two solutions – the scrubby southern wilderness of South Perth, and the utopian ideas of Sir Ebenezer Howard.
Reflect is a series of local history talks presented by South Perth Local History Librarian Anthony Styan who will take you on adventures through archives and archaeology, and learn about the odd, original and often interesting history within the City of South Perth.
In the interests of more sustainable living please BYO mug and/or water bottle. Tea, coffee and cold filtered water will be available.
