ISBN: 0646068202Category:


Sold Out

An amazing story almost lost to time but for this thrilling volume. The five identical graves all in a row and made from marble, can be seen at the Dalwallinu Cemetery. One is the grave of Mr Gustave Liebe, a renowned builder at the turn of the century and also a farmer who, with his partner Wilhelm Klein, pioneered farming at Wubin in the early 1900’s.

Gus Liebe was a contractor on the construction of Perth’s His Majesty’s Theatre and successfully sued the theatre owner Tom Molloy in 1906 over expensive variations to the contract to build the theatre.
