What horror to see that infamous Queensland mining millionaire Clive Palmer is back on the political scene. Make Australia Great. Yes please, but we don’t need your help Clive! Thanks.

I noticed the billboard on the left at Little Lefroy yesterday and thought it best to juxtapose it with something much more significant; Marriage Equality.

FREMANTLE PRISON LOOKING FOR HISTORIC ARTEFACTS

The World Heritage listed Fremantle Prison is calling for donations of artefacts to grow the Prison’s collection and encourage the return of objects with a connection to the Fremantle Prison site.

The Fremantle Prison collection holds approximately 12,000 items, including photographs, documents, furnishings, artworks, tools, clothing and textiles, institutional paraphernalia, letters, weapons and archaeological material.

The collection spans the entirety of the Prison’s operational life, from the beginning of construction in 1851 through to 1991 when the Prison was decommissioned and closed.

Fremantle Prison will be holding two ‘open days’ during which people can bring their items and discuss the donation and care of the items with the Prison’s curatorial team.

The first open day is planned for 18 May on International Museum Day, and the second on
26 May, as part of the Fremantle Heritage Festival. Both open days are from 10am – 3pm.

Fremantle Prison is visited by around 200,000 people annually, so a big tourist attraction in Fremantle.
