SOME great historic photos came out of the cupboard when Mandurah Community Museum held its local history photographic awards.
Twenty six people entered more than 200 photographs revealing Mandurah’s rich history that are now part of the museum’s collection.
The photos have been placed in a book for viewing at the museum.
These four entries rated a special mention.
1 The Mandurah foreshore in 1918 (Sharon Goreham).
2 Fisherman Hugh Gill and his crayboat the Avaneta which disappeared at sea in 1969 (Gary O’Loughlin).
3 The Barnes family holidayed at the now demolished Ol’Roy Lodge on Pinjarra Road in the early 1970s (Brett Barnes).
4 Mandurah traffic bridge was under construction in 1951. The original bridge (1894) in the background had only one lane and drivers were forced to decide who would reverse.
