UWA Albany Skywest Public Lecture : The Old Post Office Other events...
One of Albany’s most elegant buildings, the Old Post Office on Stirling Terrace has been used for many purposes in its 144-year life. Now home to the University of Western Australia in Albany, its strong granite walls can tell many tales. Historian Malcolm Traill will take you back to the convict era, the inter-colonial communication links, the wartime bustle of a busy post office, and latterly, to its time as a restaurant, a museum, and a bijou theatre. Famous names in WA public architecture such as James Manning, George Temple Poole and Francis Bird all contributed to this icon of old Albany. Malcolm Traill is a local historian and Public Programs Officer at the WA Museum – Albany. For many years, he ran the Albany History Collection at the Albany Public Library and is also a former Battye Librarian at the State Library of WA. He is also Chair of Creative Albany, which aims to bring creativity in all forms into the lives of our community. He has been one of the organisers who have instituted the inaugural Albany Heritage Festival in 2013.
