Historical Facts

Information Services will continue to use this space to inform you of new local history acquisitions, such as photographs and artifacts, as they are donated to the library and become publicly accessible. We hope to combine these pictures with their interesting back stories. Alternatively, we may provide you with a quirky anecdote relating to any one of the Lake's various suburbs in information sourced from one of our various clippings files, oral history recordings or books authored by local historians.

Most recently a former Swansea resident kindly allowed us to copy pictures originally taken in the 1940s of her family's bakery, which used to be located on the Pacific Highway at Swansea -

Hardy's Bakery, Swansea c.1940
