Welwyn Gardens

Welwyn Gardens opened 23rd November 1956, and closed in 1963. The front of the gardens is still there, and is now a Celestial Bay winery store, and a hairdresser(name unknown?). The rest of the gardens is now (other shops, or the laneway behind the shops?).

This location information is incorrect. It was actually on the corner of Welwyn Ave. and Bradshaw Cres. It was demolished in 1963 to make way for a ‘Mobil’ petrol station. I went there as a primary school student! Welwyn Ave shops (pictured above) was nearby. I have an aerial photo link that shows it clearly: http://picture.southperth.wa.gov.au/cdm/ref/collection/p15890coll6/id/71

Link is working for me (you do have to zoom in though)… the whole place has been done up – where the garage was now shows a beauty salon and a restaurant on the site, according to Google Maps I grew up in the area, but have since retired to the SW! Eastern side of Welwyn, closest to Manning Rd.

More or less – a block or so north of the corner. About where Google Maps shows Belle Sorelle and No. 16.

Description: front is still there – wrong. Demolished in ‘63 to make way for petrol station. Petrol station later morphed into an auto repair centre (in station building). More recently still, the garage building was DEMOLISHED to allow for the construction of what is there now: currently a Malaysian Restaurant(http://myrasa.com.au) and a cosmetic tattoo place (http://www.bellesorelle.com.au) and office spaces. As I said, the entire Welwyn Ave precinct has been transformed in the last decade.Shopping centre from the 1950s is still there (modernized a lot), but the old hall, tennis courts etc that were behind the shops is now a 'cultural centre’ (Library etc). Progress…. the buildings on the site of the old Gardens were put up this decade. Nothing remains of the garage, or the Gardens! ( except in memories)
