A great image of the towers of Government House, Perth circa 1864. In the foreground are members of the Western Australian Volunteer Force and their ladies at a soiree. Unfortunately not much uniform detail can be made out but the WAVF was primarily raised in Perth, Fremantle and Pinjarra. We’re compiling some fantastic pre-federation images which will be posted in due course. I am a particular fan of the uniform of the Pinjarra Mounted Volunteers which was considered the most elegant in the colony.
