  1. Dear Sir/Madam
    I have come across some black and white photos that were in possession of my late husband. They are marked Fremantle museum/ asylum and ‘E. Fremantle P.S.’. Not sure if you are interested. I am happy to mail them to you if you are interested. They are dated 1974.
    Thank you

  2. Hello,
    I am looking for information on my aboriginal grandmother who I believe would have attended the Princess May School in the 1930’s.
    She lived at the Cottesloe Salvation Army Girls school – do you have any archives and information from this era, and if not do you know who May have kept.
    She and my father were both born at Hillcrest in North Fremantle do I am looking for anything of this also ?
    I look forward to hearing back from you.
    Thankyou
    Sherryl

    1. Sorry I don’t think I can help you. I am researching the life and times of Albert James Rogers Blight, 1900 to 1969. He was a detective policeman from 1923 to 1952. His postings included a period in Fremantle in the 1930s, which appears to have been a pretty rough time. I have reconstructed his police career by using Court Reports in Trove.

      1. Thankyou for reply, do you know where I could possibly find this information on Princess May Theatre?

      2. Sorry don’t know. Bert’s wife Betty played piano at the silent movies in the 20s and 30s and his brother Donny was a manager of one of the theatres in the 1930s.

        Have you tried the NLA’s Trove of newspaper records? I got lots of material from them.

    3. The Fremantle History Society doesn’t have a collection. I suggest you contact the Fremantle History Centre, lhc@fremantle.wa.gov.au. They are presently in shutdown so it may be awhile until you receive a response.
