Brekkie with a bit of history

In case you were snoozing through all your alarms this morning and missed out on 720 ABC’s Breakfast, visit the link below to have a listen to a very special bit of history on the early days of the South Perth Council Offices…

And if you enjoy wandering through that precinct and you’re itching for more on the history of the Mends Street area (and also snoozed through last fortnight’s Brekkie spot), visit the link below to learn more about the early beginnings of the Windsor Hotel…

Now I’m off to buy a stamp…

It’s 1898 and I need to collect my mail!

Did you know that the first post and telegraph office in South Perth operated out of a room at the foot of the stairs in the Windsor Hotel?

The office began operating on 7 November 1898 (the same day that the Windsor officially opened for trade) and continuted to operate until the Post Office on the corner of Mends Street and Mill Point Road was constructed in 1900.
