The award-winning Curtin University research project holds an online collection of interactive images of historical views of Perth and Fremantle to provide an even more stunning insight into how the cities have changed over the past 150 years.
Project Supervisor and Curtin Hub for Immersive Visualisation and eResearch manager Dr Andrew Woods said the project’s website had more than doubled in size and now featured more than 30 new or updated wide-angle panoramic views dating as far back as 1858.
The project even includes snapshots of the mundane, from horses, chickens and watching in backyards, to a vision of the icons that once lined the streets.
Originally launched in 2016, the project has already been recognised at the 2017 Western Australian Heritage Awards and received a framed certificate and an engraved medallion from The Perth Mint in recognition of its contribution to Western Australia’s heritage.
