PROJECT: Matilda Bay occupies a unique place in the history of Perth. The bay was named after Matilda Roe, wife of John Septimus Roe, the first Surveyor of Western Australia. The site played an important role in the early years of Perth, and has served as an area for many social activities.

In celebration of this history and the elegant restaurant which has taken on the task of keeping these stories alive, Creative Spaces created a photographic exhibition that documents the history of the bay. We sourced up to 85 images for inclusion in the display, designed the layout, selected frames and coordinated the printing and installation. Richard Offen from Heritage Perth kindly assisted us with the research and writing.

COMPLETED: December 2015
