A few weekends ago during Open House Perth we stopped in to the West Australian Rowing Club, here next to Barrack Square since 1906. The WARC, the last rowing club remaining on the Perth city foreshore, was almost demolished in the 1960's, surviving only to fall into disrepair (see middle pic below) in 1990. After serious rallying saved the club it was put on the Register of Heritage Places in 2001 as 'highly significant as the last remaining building representing a diversity of recreational, social, industrial and transportation activities carried out on the river and foreshore during the first one hundred years of the colony.' Phew!
Apart from the amazing views the old photos above were a highlight for me..

Looking out to South Perth below and over to the cafes and restaurants at Barrack Street Jetty, and yes Andrew the Lucky Shag is still there :)
Below glimpses of glimpses..
Here looking back to the city and Rubra On The Swan, not too shabby a spot to have breakfast! Hope you're having a good week, happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
