The historic Claremont Goods Shed (next to Claremont Station) was the venue this morning for the Perth Plein Air Painters gathering for a paint-out.
The Goods Shed was built in 1887 a year after the Claremont station opened to the public serving the new Fremantle to Guildford rail line which had opened in 1881. This shed served as a small warehouse for goods that would have arrived by ship in Fremantle.
Unbelievably the passenger services on the Fremantle to Perth were abolished for 4 years between September 1979 and July 1983 (allegedly due to poor passenger numbers, the service was only reinstated with a change of government).
The shed has been restored and re-purposed as a not-for-profit arts hub run by Form and has a little cafe (opposite side to my sketch).
