Infants and Girls School [1877/1878] - Fremantle Technical School , Western Australia - Dated Buildings and Cornerstones

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 [see http://waymarking.com]. The image was taken in August 2016.

Whilst the Fremantle Technical School is today known as the Challenger Institute of Technology, which is in turn the South Metropolitan TAFE, it started life in 1877/1878 as the Infants and Girls School. It appears it ceased to be a school around 1904 if the information at schools is correct.

This photograph is of what was known as the Infants and Girls School.

Whilst the Fremantle Technical School is today known as the Challenger Institute of Technology, which is in turn the South Metropolitan TAFE, it started life in 1913 as a two-story building of brick construction in the federation Free style. It is representative of the development a technical education system for post primary aged children in Western Australia. It appears that the TAFE ceased to use the building in 2001 and in 2019 works where commenced to ready it for sale.
