Seaman's Rest aka Sailor's Rest aka Port Lodge - 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 http://waymarking.com.

Seaman's Rest or Sailor's Rest (it seems even Heritage Western Australia is not sure of the name) is a place in Fremantle that has social and historic significance as a building erected to provide a rest home for sailors and for associations with the Women's Christian Temperance Union. The place has aesthetic significance as an unusual example of a building in the Federation Arts and Crafts style that has been extensively altered.

The Sailors' Rest home came about because of the efforts of Mrs T. Smith, a member of the Fremantle branch of the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU). Land was demanded from the government, and the building was constructed with funds raised by public subscription. The foundation stone was laid by Sir John Forrest on 9 October 1899. W. A. Nelson, Architect, T. Game, Builder.

The building was later owned by the British Sailors' Society Fremantle Branch. Today it is part of the Notre Dame University and is a student accomodation facility, Port Lodge.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk {Day 11-21} by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Peace at home; peace in the world. This statute in remembrance of the Battle of Gallipoli and the Turkish President, Ataturk marks the end of my unconventional ride from Esperance to Albany, Western Australia.
