Early Days, contents of vols 1-9

Fremantle, newsletter of the Fremantle Society, complete run from 1973-2014 (ceased publication) scanned by Garry Gillard for this website. All of these should also be available on the Society and/or Fremantle City Library websites.
(I have created a full set of PDFs of all of the newsletters and sent them to the History Librarian. He has not yet made them available.
The Fremantle Society does not have FTP access to its own site, so the newsletters cannot be put up on it.)

Fremantle History Society Newsletter, complete run from 1994-date (still in publication) scanned by Pam Harris, Fremantle History Librarian, and Garry Gillard, and made available by this website. All of these should also be available on the FHS and/or Fremantle City Library websites. They both have access to the full set in the form of PDFs.

Fremantle Studies, journal of the Fremantle History Society, complete run to 1999-date (still being published) scanned by Garry Gillard for this website. All of these should be also available on the FS and/or Fremantle City Library websites.
