It shares links to all of the different photograph collections that have been shared online by different local councils around Western Australia from their local history collections.

You can browse through historic images from Armadale, Cambridge, Joondalup, Kalamunda and more! New collections are being added every week as more collections come on board.

They also have a dedicated Facebook page for highlighting photographs from these collections. Click below to visit the Facebook page and ‘like’ it to see the images shared in your news feed…

And if you have any photographs of a local area in your own personal collection, share them with us! You can either share them on the Facebook page and/or contact the local council featured and discuss including it in their collection.
