Inglewood

Inglewood is an inner city suburb sandwiched between Mount Lawley, Bedford and Dianella. The suburb is centred mainly around Walter Road and is home to the Mount Lawley Golf Club. Inglewood was established as a suburb in the 1890's as a result of a population surge due to the gold boom. Early settler, Mr E. Harmer, owned a property here called Inglewood Estate. The name may have originated from a vessel which called at Fremantle in the 1890's


 
 
   
 
 

Inglewood - Civic Theatre

The prominent former Civic Theatre on the corner of Beaufort Street and Dundas Road. This was constructed in 1937. Preceeding this, on this site or next door, was the Piccadilly Picture Gardens which was constructed in 1926 but burnt down in 1928. Films ceased being shown in the Civic Theatre in 1962. From 1979 the premises were a night club for a while. Later, Dawson's Motor Cycles occupied the premises. Flight Centre is in here now. January 2011. Photos Ref: INGL001

Inglewood - Old Shops

These old, closed-down shops seem (to me) to typify the lack of vibrancy around this area. The difference between here and Mount Lawley just down the road is marked. "Head Set", however, is still operating - from other premises just to the left of this building. January 2011. Photos Ref: INGL006
