Old pic sparks interest in Gosnells City’s past
Leonie Clarke loves collecting vintage stuff and has started a Facebook page called Lost Gosnells that has proven popular with residents.

Hoping others would share the same interest, she decided to post it on a Facebook page called Lost Gosnells, which has since taken off and proven to be very popular.

The page currently has more than 2400 �likes� and features photos of the Gosnells train station back in the 1800s and photos of local shops from 25 years ago.

Ms Clarke said she started the page when she found the old photos on Google.

She said some of the more popular photos included the ones of the Gosnells Hotel, the Gosnells train station and old school class photos.

�There is a lot of interest in the page,� she said.

�I think (it�s) because it brings back wonderful memories of Gosnells and surrounds growing up.

�So hoping that others would have a keen interest in Gosnells memories, I started the page and I am astounded that it has gained such a great following.

�Gosnells was a wonderful place to grow up in and it has rekindled childhood friendships, given younger ones glimpses into Gosnells� past history and a reminder of things we have forgotten about.�

The Facebook page has even attracted sponsors with One Residential Real Estate donating prizes for competitions on the page.
