About the Collection

These pictures are part of the Community History Library of The Grove in Western Australia. The pictures show life in Cottesloe, Mosman Park and Peppermint Grove from the early 1890s and include people, places and events. New images are being added all the time. Local residents have donated most of the images and we thank them for their generosity in sharing their photographs and helping build this unique visual history.


The Library welcomes contributions of photographs from the community. Photographs can be made available for copying and the originals will then be returned to the owners. If you have photographs you would like to contribute to the collection, please contact us:
