Meltham

Meltham is a small locality which is within the City of Bayswater, a little north-east of Maylands, and about 5 km from Perth. The locality is located on the Perth - Midland railway line and has its own station. Main roads in the area include Grand Promenade and Railway Parade. Meltham is not listed as an official Perth suburb, it is actually the southern corner of Bayswater. The name Meltham is probably derived from a town of the same name in Yorkshire


 
 
   
 
 

Meltham - Russian Orthodox Church

This is the Russian Orthodox church on Whatley Crescent. It was completed in 1991. This is the only physical Russian Orthodox church in Perth. Its design is based on a church in Siberia. The congregation met previously in a slightly less robust structure between 1952 to 1990. June 2008. Photos Ref: MELT001

 

Meltham - Railway Station

Meltham train station's footbridge is a road to nowhere as presently there is obviously work going on. This station was built in 1948 to cater for a rapidly growing local population. It was a long walk to either Maylands or Bayswater station. From 1913 to 1948 only a signal box existed at the station site. June 2008. Photos Ref: MELT002

 

Meltham - Dubrovnik Butchers

The colourful Dubrovnik butcher's and small-goods shop is pretty well known around Perth. This is located on Railway Parade, near the corner of Grand Promenade and across from Meltham Station. A sign on the other side of the shop - "Perth's Best Wurst" - a good pun. Mr Paul Marinovich opened the store in 1974. Alas, the business ceased operating in 2012. June 2008. Photos Ref: MELT003
