Event description

Description

Presented By:

Andrew Woods & Marcia Schneider

Abstract:

The Historical Panoramas project, a collaboration between the State Library of Western Australia and Curtin University’s HIVE (Hub for Immersive Visualisation and eResearch), showcases panoramic pictures of Perth and Fremantle dating back as far as the 1860s and juxtaposes them with modern-day views to reveal the dramatic changes undergone by both cities. The centrepiece of the project website is a series of panoramas that were taken from the tower of the Perth Town Hall at four different times in the city’s history – 1885, 1906, 1925 and 2016. The project also includes panoramas from another 11 locations in Perth, South Perth, Kings Park and Fremantle – complete with tall ships in the harbour. The presentation will discuss the conception, delivery, research benefits and future of the Historical Panoramas project.
