Dr W H Findlay was a Consultant at PRI from 1948 to 1970 and President of both the PSNS and the Photographic Section. From the 1950s to the 1980s he amassed a huge collection of photographs of Perth’s townscape. More than 6000 of his prints are now stored in the A.K. Bell Library and many of those appear in his 1984 book, Heritage of Perth. Dr Findlay’s family have recently made his entire collection of over 25,000 photographs available to the PSNS.The photographs show Perth as a city in transition – from the old to the new.
