BASSENDEAN has lost an important part of its heritage, the plaque from the Fire Station in Parker Street.
It provided valuable data about the heritage-listed building. The plaque has significant value because it tells that it was unveiled by R. A. McDonald, the first chairman of the Road Board, in 1911.
Since that time, career firemen and volunteers have occupied the station.
If someone removed the plaque as a souvenir then would they please return it.
Long-term residents are proud of Bassendean’s history and I would like to assume that the person who took the plaque did so for safe keeping.
But it would be appreciated if he or she would return it.
