Naval Store

Canning Highway

This ugly shed has been the entrance to Fremantle statement greeting people coming over the traffic bridge since 1935. It was made even worse when someone painted an octopus on it a few years ago. The new bridge planned for 2021- will still land with it in plain view, just a bit further to the viewer's right. Unfortunately, it's seen as 'heritage'.

Apparently Enkel, which was going to use the space for whatever it does, is no longer interested in using a place which has no parking and only quite difficult access, and it's going to be YET ANOTHER space for drinking and meeting (but still with no parking).
