Celebrating the contribution of our southern European migrants
The City of Fremantle is seeking to celebrate the contribution of southern European migrants, starting with a map of the families, places and businesses that helped make Freo the eclectic place it is today. Fremantle was the arrival point in Australia for hundreds of thousands of migrants in the years following World War II.
They are asking people to tell them the places, customs, businesses, industries or families that are important to them, and provide photos to be added to the Fremantle History collection.
People can make a contribution to the project by adding information to the ‘Shaping Fremantle’ map on the City’s My Say Freo website. Submissions close on Sunday 17 January 2021.
