Fremantle Technical School , Western Australia - Dated Buildings and Cornerstones by Andrew Priest, on Flickr
This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of Waymarking. The image was taken in August 2016.
Whilst the Fremantle Technical School is today known as the Challenger Institute of Technology, which is, in turn, the South Metropolitan TAFE, it started life in 1913 as a two-story building of brick construction in the Federation Freestyle. It is representative of the development of a technical education system for post-primary aged children in Western Australia. It appears that the TAFE ceased to use the building in 2001 and in 2019 works were commenced to ready it for sale.
