Maylands moves ahead
Maylands railway station had a comprehensive makeover.
The Royal Western Australian Institute for the Blind changes its name to Senses Foundation (inc) in 2001 and registers its new name in August.
The whole of the Peninsula Hotel building was leased to Dome Coffees as a Coffee shop and as their headquarters.
Renovations at the Peninsula Hotel unearthed a handful of coins dated 1930s, 1940s and 1950s under the concrete flooring of the verandah which was being dug and replaced. The construction manager kindly handed them in to us – silver threepences, sixpence, one shilling, pennies and halfpennies.
With a grant from the Federal Government, we purchased a new camcorder, to aid in recording the presentations, which form an important part of our collection on the history of Maylands.
Official opening of Aerodrome Park, Maylands.
Maylands Historical & Peninsula Association Inc turned 25!
