History in a Coffee Cup


Location: Council Administration Building
Time:02 May 2019 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Join internationally renowned historian and archivist Dr Joanna Sassoon as she presents a fascinating history on the life of one of WA's first professional photographers, Ernest Mitchell Lund (1876-1959). Mitchell's images of landscapes, towns, primary industry and Aboriginal people in the Kimberly, Pilbara and the Moore River Mission, were used extensively in text books, encyclopedias and newspapers.

Mitchell's photographs provide an incredible insight into our past as well as into our rapidly changing way of life. Mitchell and his wife were residents of Claremont from 1946 until he died in 1959.

Morning tea provided.
