Perth CBD: 16 November 2010

I had some time to spare after my walk down Beaufort Street so decided to take photos of parts of the CBD that I didn’t manage to cover the day before.

Perth Railway station was built between 1883-84 and continues to serve as the city’s primary and largest railway station.

The retail/office space around the Wesley Church was revamped just over a year ago.

The building is unfortunately going to be used for office space above the retail on street level. A shame, as it is perfect for a bar/restaurant.

The Art Deco Gledden building was constructed between 1937-38, inspired by developments in New York City and Chicago at the time.

Heading west along Hay Street.

Shafto Lane has always been activated to an extent, but the focus is becoming more dining/drinking related, which has added an extra layer of vibrancy to the lane.

The other half of Shafto Lane, hopefully to be activated.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
