One of the ways the City celebrates its local history is through the Local Heritage Survey (LHS). The LHS provides a cultural and historical record of the area and tells the story of the development of the district.
The City has recently completed reviews of the LHS for the Triangle and the West Subiaco Precincts. The Triangle Precinct is the area bounded by Thomas Street and Nicholson and Rokeby Roads. The West Subiaco Precinct is the area bounded by Nicholson Road to the south, the railway reserve to the west, Bagot Road to the north and follows the rear boundaries of properties on the western side of Rokeby Road.

As part of the process a heritage assessment of the properties proposed to be included in the expanded heritage areas was undertaken. A copy of the assessment can be viewed here.
Have you wondered what your property looked like 100 years ago? You can find out using a free online resource launched by the State Records Office of WA.
With the ‘RetroMaps’ site you can search by address, look for your house and compare the old plan with today’s aerial.
Using this resource you can see your property “now and then”, including how your house has changed and also your neighbourhood. Discover where people kept their chooks, vines, and wells, and which homes had windmills, stables, cowsheds and tennis courts.
Have you ever wanted to unlock the history of your house? Thanks to a new brochure you now have the keys – where to go and the things to look for.
The brochure is a one-stop-shop detailing useful and readily accessible resources that can help to fill out the picture of your property. Importantly it also provides detail on the type of information that can be gleaned from each resource, how and where they can be accessed, and tips on how to use the resources effectively.
