Published to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the National Trust in Western Australia, this beautifully designed book contains never-before-published archival images and oral histories from many of the founders, staff and volunteers of the organisation. Heritage battles foug...ht for the Barracks Arch, Mills Point, the Palace Hotel, the Swan River and the Swan Brewery are covered, as well as the integral role played by grass roots heritage groups, relations between the Trust and developers and the State Government, and the increasing emphasis on conservation. What emerges is not only a history of the National Trust in Western Australia and the people that shaped it. It is also a history of the ways in which heritage has been understood and practised across Australia.
