DOZENS of photos have been posted to Lost Kwinana in celebration of what Kwinana used to be.
Facebook group administrator and Kwinana local of 39 years Dion Hardidge was inspired to create the page to celebrate Kwinana’s history.
“After a quick search I found little to no groups for Kwinana’s past, so this way some of Kwinana’s long-term residents can share their photos and the new Kwinanians can see how much Kwinana has changed over the years,” he said.
Mr Hardidge said the community had grown in the time he has lived there.
“One of Kwinana’s biggest gathering places for locals were our outdoor swimming pools and still after 20 years they are talked about and wanted back,” he said.
“(The) new roads, new trees and new parks are great and were well over due.”
Mr Hardidge said he is not a history buff, just a long-term resident.
The group joins a long list of “Lost” pages, including Lost Perth, which started the blast from the past phenomenon.
Lost Perth has more than 130,000 likes and has been published in two hardcover books.
While Lost Kwinana has not reached that level of likes yet, it does have more than 300 group members.
