Fremantle encore and 'almost' fini!



I'm almost done with Fremantle.. until the next time :) I cannot resist taking a few more shots looking down (ph)abulous Phillimore Street. This has to be one of the most attractive streets anywhere! Below the old Fremantle Fire Station, now the Old Fire Station Backpackers hostel, I might even be tempted to backpack just to stay there.. or maybe not :)


Below, right next door the new Fremantle Fire Station, not quite as aesthetically pleasing to the eye but super efficient, which really is the main priority of a fire station ..
 

Below just a few of the heritage buildings along this street.. there's the P&O Building built in 1903, the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce opened in 1912, the old Dock Buildings and Scottish House 1917/1919 ( there are some excellent old black and whites on the Scottish House link). One more Freo reflection tomorrow and we're done! TGIF take care and stay safe..

  3. What a great town this is. My friend who spends a couple of months a year in Perth had an apartment in Freemantle for a few years. I think I now know why!

  4. I see what you mean about this being an attractive street. There are certainly a lot of beautifully designed buildings here. I also love that tree outside the fire station. What a beauty!

  5. It is a beautiful area, PDP. The windows in the firestation doors just need numbers/letters on them to look like a key pad.

  6. Walking down that street is like walking backward in time...what glorious buildings and they are so well kept. I love the shot with a couple of the bikers towing some kind of trailer - probably for their dogs! Was that serendipitous?

  7. A beautiful area Grace. I love those old well cared for buildings. My favorite image is the cyclists riding by the fire station with the opened doors. Have a great day!

  8. That hostel would make me a believer. What a beautiful city. And it looks like those old buildings are really valued and cared for. How nice!

  9. I just love the old buildings, similar to what we have in NZ throughout the cities and towns, they have so much more history attached to them.

  10. I adore this Pacific history that rhymes with Honolulu's buildings of the same era - some worked on by artisans from your land!

  12. Great looking old fire station. I don't recall ever seeing one that nice in the USA. Problem with the new ones is there is no top floor therefore no pole.

  13. By golly, Grace, we must´ve missed Phillimore Street each and every time, I cannot remember the firestation!
    On the Perth list 2019!
    Oh, I think they could´ve at least used red stone to fit in properly.
    No more backpackers for me, those days are long over ;-)
