ROCKINGHAM history buff Mark Schneider is eager to share old photos and has set up a Facebook page to celebrate the City’s past.

Mr Schneider has lived in Rockingham for 30 years and started the page about five years ago, having since accumulated 8400 ‘likes’ after similar pages were started for other regional centres including Perth and Mandurah.

“I tried to find as many photos as I could and put them online to start the page,” he said.

“The big treasure trove of photos are in shoeboxes underneath beds in people’s homes who may have been living in the area for 60 years or so.”

He will be giving a talk about the page at the Rockingham Museum next Saturday, June 24, at 2pm.

The museum is open from 1 to 4pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. For further details about visiting or attending Mr Schneider’s talk, call 9592 3455.
