Early Businesses of Vincent: a local history

In 2010 the Local History Centre published Early Businesses of Vincent: a local history.

Containing 230 pages of photographs and extracts from interviews from the Local History Collection which have been acquired over the last ten years, the book features photographs, stories  and recollections of over 60 businesses in the suburbs of Leederville, North Perth, Mount Hawthorn, Perth, Highgate and Mount Lawley, pre-1970s, although some continue to the present day. There is also a general history of the commercial development of each suburb.

Presented in a very easy to browse colourful format featuring over 200 photographs, this book is a must for those who remember these businesses and those who want to discover the history of the area or appreciate our past.
