We have a bit of a thing about old industrial sites. So it’s nice to see that Minim Cove, a posh suburb on the Swan River in Perth, has signs to remind us that all those fancy houses, gardens and parks stand on a rehabilitated industrial site.

The area had Billy Goat Farm in the 19th century, and then a fertilizer factory, quarry, cement works and engineering workshops in the 20th century.
