Carlisle

Carlisle is a mostly residential suburb located to the south of Lathlain and Rivervale. After 1893, when a rail siding opened here called Haydon's Siding (after the Foundry), people started moving in. A railway station was built at the siding and was first called Mint Street but this later changed to Victoria Park East. Carlisle could have been named after the town of the same name in Scotland, or after the manager of a company who once owned this land.


 
 
 
 
 

Carlisle - School

Carlisle Primary School on the corner of Orrong Road and Wright Street. Well someone took a bit of poetic licence as this is not actually in Carlisle at all. It is in Kewdale. So I'm going to grab and use a slice of that licence for this and the next two pictures! Photo - September 2017. Photos Ref: CARL001
