Notes on the Geography of Australia: Central Perth 1: Photo 3

world pictures Australia: Central Perth 1

So the first surveyor-general of Western Australia was Septimus Roe, 1797-1878. It was he who chose the site of Perth (and Fremantle) and who also reserved the site of the grand Kings Park. Not too bad for a white guy. And you ask why I burden you with this information? Simple: the concrete waffle in front of you is Septimus Roe Square, the splendid property of the Far East Organization of Singapore. Good thing Septimus isn't around to sue.

See the low, older building? That's the home of Cloonmore, a mining and energy consultant.
