Seven Sisters Minim 1

We were walking beside the Swan River in Minim Cove, Perth this week and stopped to look at these quirky chairs. There are seven of them and they are called the Seven Sisters – not referring to the star constellation of that name, but to the fact that there used to be seven hills in this area.

Today there is just one of the hills left; Buckland Hill. The others were all quarried in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for limestone, which was used to construct buildings and roads in Perth.
