  • East End Cobblestones

    The construction crew have uncovered some original cobblestones on Pier Street as part of the City of Perth’s East End Revitalisation project.

    More than 1000 stones from the 1920s or earlier are now in safe storage, with hopes to re-use them in the East End Revitalisation Project.

    Fiona Hook from Archae-Aus says while commonly referred to as ‘cobblestones’, these stones appear to have been cut or dressed in a quarry and are not naturally shaped cobblestones.

  • Uncovering History in the East End

    During recent works on Pier Street the construction crew uncovered original granite cobblestones dating back to the early 1920’s. It is thought the cobblestones which weigh 2 kilograms each, came from Stathams Quarry in Gooseberry Hill and were similar to the early asphalt roads that appeared in Perth in the 1880s.

    Pier Street was one of the earliest streets in Perth, running all the way down to Government House and Pier Street Jetty. It is no coincidence the cobblestones were used on this street, as they distinguished the more affluent side of the City, featuring Government House and the churches.

    The cobblestones have now been removed and are stored away awaiting their next home, likely in another area of the East End.
