Walyalup Ngoonkaa by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

I haven’t been able to find much about this sculpture or its partner other than this tidbit on the Somewhere Else blog from 2014. The blogger suggests that this sculpture is by Tony Jones and Daniel Iley, and is titled “Walyalup Ngoonkaa” – which means Fremantle Wind in the local Aboriginal language.

John Curtin High School Manual Arts by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The John Curtin School of Arts (now known as the John Curtin College of the Arts) Manual Arts building is the first permanent building built on the site in 1943 (during World War II). At that time the school was known as the Fremantle Free Grammar School and had been in existence on this site since 1856, but without it seems, a permanent building.
