FROM THE ARCHIVES

Subiaco was built on a Sunday

With a surge of people coming to Western Australia in the early 1900s, a shortage of accommodation left many living in tents until permanent accomodation could be secured. Subiaco company Whittaker Brothers identified a need for cheap, easy to build houses and developed prefabricated kit homes, allowing land owners to build without commissioning builders. 
 
Land owners began building these simple worker's cottages as time permitted. Most often, men worked Monday through Saturday and took time on Sunday to build the timber kit homes, leading to a popular saying that Subiaco was built on a Sunday.

If this piece of our heritage or others are important to you, have your say on the city's Strategic Heritage Plan. Image supplied by Subiaco Museum.
