Fremantle Cemetery Heritage Tour 2014

The Fremantle Heritage Festival sometimes includes a tour of the Cemetery conducted by Don Whittington, a member of the MCB. In 2014 for the first time the tour included brief performances by actors representing interees. Here are some photos.

Don/Martha Rendell
