Pioneer Park plan, 2009. Agnieshka Kiera: The Council adopted the Pioneer Park as the strategic project for staged implementation. It would have been the most exciting archaeological park in WA as, apart from anthropological archaeology, there is precious little historic archaeology in WA, and to my knowledge Pioneer Park contains unmatched riches in the form of 1840-1870s settlement on what once was a residential town block of the city, not only of the houses but the whole households including the external privies and laundry, the water well, paved courtyard, boarding house, shop buildings etc. Lotterywest funding was promised - but the project was shelved.

Warders Cottages reports, 2013.

The Streets of Freo project was in the process until 2022 of scanning plans and reports in the Fremantle Society collection: I'll provide links from this page to their website.

This section of this bibliography will list the publications in that collection (which in 2022 was stored in the strongroom of the former National Bank at 16 High Street, but in 2023 is in the Museum's central store ... somewhere).
