South Terrace

The first building in South Terrace coming from the north is the Newcastle Club Hotel.

newcastle

Newcastle Club Hotel, 1897, aka Newport since the Americas Cup defence, 2 South Terrace, on the corner with Market St

ginos

Gino's is opposite the Newport.

evandavies

The Literary Institute was renamed the Evan Davies building when it became Fremantle's library. It would now be known as the Dome building.

kingstheatre

James Gallop's King's Theatre (Metropolis nightclub) is next to the Freemasons.

freemasons

The Freemasons Hotel (Sail and Anchor since the Americas Cup defence) is on one corner of Henderson St.

markets

Fremantle Markets is on the other corner of Henderson St.

girlsschool

The 1877 Infant and Girls School is now part of the Marine Studies TAFE.

scots

The Scots Church is on the corner of what is now Parry St. (I think it would have been Norfolk St when it was built.)

synagogue

The synagogue is on the opposite corner of Parry St.

oddfellows

The Oddfellows Hotel is on the corner of Norfolk St, and now has that name. It was renovated at the time of the Americas Cup defence - the 'renovation' in this case meaning that the front half of the building was completely removed.

barracks

The now closed Stan Reilly Centre for the aged stands pretty much where the Barracks used to be 1853-1950s.

snook

What I am calling the Snook Building (which dates possibly from 1880) is opposite what was the Stan Reilly Centre. It stands out by its remoteness at the moment from other buildings. Current tenants are the Record Cellar (literally in a cellar) and a tax accountant.

knowle

Fremantle Hospital extends from opposite the corner of Suffolk St to Alma St. Various South Terrace school buildings once stood here.
