Old Fremantle covers the first hundred years of the camera in Fremantle. Over 240 early original photographs scanned and printed in colour tell a vivid story of Fremantle from early interaction with the Aborigines through the development of port and town, the gold-rushes and wars, to 1950.
More than 25,000 words of text, which include commentary by Phillip Adams and George Seddon, background material, maps, and index, make this a serious reference work as well as a visual delight for all ages.
