John Curtin

John Curtin was the member for Fremantle in the House of Reps 1928-1931, 1934-1945, and leader of the ALP 1935-1945. He was PM 1941-45, dying in office. He was the only PM to represent a WA constituency. There is a large and imho unattractive statue of him on a plinth outside the Town Hall.
