Wembley

Wembley is a western suburb situated west of West Leederville, north of Subiaco, and to the east of Floreat and is about 4 kilometres west of the city centre. Subdivision and building commenced here in 1909. Up until 1924 this area was part of Leederville. It took the name Wembley Park after the London locality but was later shortened to Wembley. The suburb contains main roads such as Salvado Rd, and Cambridge, Grantham and Harborne Streets

Wembley - Block of Flats on Reserve Street

This large white and chocolate coloured block of flats has been here for decades and is a well-known landmark on the corner of Reserve Street. It was built approximately 1960/1970's as were a number of other blocks in this area. January 2011. Photos Ref: WEMB001

 

Wembley - Theatre and Gardens

This building is now used as a Life Style centre. It's at 202 Cambridge Street on the corner of Station Street. This is the old Wembley Theatre building and the owner used to be a Mr Hatfield. This was built in 1937, renovated in 1961, and a result of a fire in 1981, rebuilt, leaving only the facade as an original part of the 1937 building. This building has also been known as Wembley Catering Lodge at one stage. January 2011. Photos Ref: WEMB002

Wembley - Market on Cambridge Street

Great to see markets like this, spilling over onto near the footpath and adding a bit of colour and atmosphere to the street. This second hand business is on Cambridge Street, again near Alexander Street, in what once was a service station. January 2011. Photos Ref: WEMB006
