The Streets of the Historic Quarter - Le Puy-en-Velay - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-10 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Exploring Le Puy-en-Velay in the evening. It is hard to grasp the age and sense of history at times of the buildings and alleys we wandered down.

Day 0 of 12 - Le Puy-en-Velay: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

Basilica of St Patrick - Fremantle , Western Australia - Roman Catholic Churches - (002}
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of Waymarking.

The Basilica of St Patrick’s Fremantle was established around 1850, the third Catholic Community in Western Australia after St Mary’s Cathedral Parish Perth and the Benedictine community of New Norcia. Till 1894 the parish was served mainly by Diocesan Priests with the exception of the 1850s when it was served by a number of Benedictines who each came for a short time.

Since 1894 the parish has been entrusted to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. It was their first foundation in Australia and they have now been responsible for its pastoral care for 102 years.

In respect to why it is a Basilica, Wikipedia and Fremantle Stuff are helpful here. There are four major basilicas, all in Rome, and over 1600 minor basilicas elsewhere, of which this is one. It means that this parish is obliged to fulfil certain liturgical obligations, and: 'It should be sufficiently large and with an ample sanctuary. It should be renowned for history, relics or sacred images, and should be served by a sufficient number of priests and other ministers and by an adequate choir.'

It does not appear to be a heritage listed building which is curious.

7-Eleven Fremantle [01] - 7-Eleven Stores
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of Waymarking.

This Seven-11 store, one of two within the CBD of Fremantle reflects the influence of American culture on Australia. The first Seven-11 store in Australia was opened in 1977 and more recently the chain has adverse media attention over its under payment of staff wages.Today, Fremantle has two Seven-11 stores, this one and one of the opposite corner of the block. This particular store replaces the previous occupant of this site, a Gloria Jeans Coffee Shop.
