Maylands history from Federation up to World War I
After Joseph Hardey’s death, his son Richard developed the land for sale for urban settlement in 1903. This coincided with the growth of the Maylands town area, which absorbed the Peninsula as a suburb known as Maylands.
The Peninsula Hotel was operating on the corner of Eighth Avenue and Railway Parade Maylands
This hotel was designed and built by Gus Liebe, better known as the architect and builder of His Majesty’s Theatre in Hay Street, Perth.
The Maylands Police Station and residential quarters was built on the southern side of Guildford Road, between Eighth Avenue and Ninth Avenues. (This building now houses the Maylands Historical and Peninsula Association.)
