7 ALDGATE PLACE

7 Aldgate Place east Fremantle WA 6158 (map)

ARCHITECTURE

Federation / Federation Bungalow with Queen Anne Influences

No. 7 Aldgate Place, is a single-storey house constructed in limestone, tuck-pointed brick and rendered brick, with a hipped and gabled, corrugated-iron roof. ‘Aldgate’ is a very fine example of the Federation Queen Anne style. The place is enhanced by hand-painted ceiling murals, friezes and stencils to the interior of the residence. The front elevation is asymmetrically planned with a thrust bay and a part-width, return, hip-roofed verandah. The verandah is supported on timber posts with a decorative wrought iron frieze. The gable bay features a cartouche with a pair of double-hung sash windows and hopper lights. There is a central door and hopper-light, flanked by sidelights and double-hung sash windows. The place features a diagonal corner bay with a pair of windows and a gable sitting above it. There is a long, elevated approach to the residence. The aesthetic qualities of this place are enhanced by its relationship to the gardens, its formal broad-stone steps and Italianate balustrades. The roofscape features tall render-capped chimneys and the walls are tuck-pointed brick with rendered quoins.

The place retains its form and most of its details, but the lot has been subdivided and several residences built to the front. These residences and Aldgate share a common road titled Aldgate Place.

HISTORY

Aldgate is significant as an example of residences built on large, river-facing lots in this part of East Fremantle, by more affluent citizens in the 1890s and early 1900s. The place is a reminder of a period when the elevated locations on Preston Point Road, and the immediate surroundings, were desirable residential locations for the affluent. Aldgate had a close association, for a comparatively short period, with Paul Strelitz, who, with his brother Richard, established a trading company and was influential in international trade, diplomacy and local politics in Perth and Fremantle.

Richmond Raceway

Richmond Raceway (map)

History

Originally part of the property owned by George Pearse, Richmond Raceway was a horse and harness racing track in East Fremantle. It was established in 1928 and ran until it closed in 1991, when the area became a housing estate.

Construction: A photo from the Daily News, Tuesday 7 February 1928, shows part of the straight of the trotting track being constructed using limestone taken from the hill inside the grounds.

From the West Australian, Tuesday 24 July 1928, page 10

‘‘TROTTING- FREMANTLE CLUB'S MEETING. An Auspicious Opening

Considering that the meeting was held in the middle of winter the Fremantle Trotting Club must have been delighted with the fine, frosty weather that prevailed last night, and more than satisfied with the great crowd that attended their initial meeting, which had been postponed from Saturday night, on the newly-made course at East Fremantle. With one exception, well fancied horses were successful in every event. The seven races were decided over long distance and between events music was supplied by a brass band. The club have made a good impression with the manner in which they handled the arrangements for their first fixture. The programme opened with an event for West Australian bred horses over a mile and a half. Doncino, who was lying handy over the early stages just won from Pronto's Gift. Vanity Wilkes stumbled and unseated her driver, who was uninjured. Little Saxon pulled up. From 2 to 1 Alto Donald firmed to evens for the Preliminary Handicap. The gelding justified the confidence reposed in him by winning easily from the early pacemaker; Manx Harold. From 5 to 2 Leo Huon drifted to 5's,' while Redmaster from 5 to 2 against firmed to 6 to 4 on for the Silas Handicap. Another favourite in Grand Bells was successful in the George Handicap. He won narrowly from Black Tips, who unfortunately for his backers faulted at a critical stage. Craboon also broke, while Witch Way pulled up In the Fremantle Handicap. A 10 to 1 chance won the Moss Handicap, Neweybar beating the favourite Anna Bells, to the line. The meeting was brought to a close with the Marmion Handicap, which went to Happy Alto; the favourite; Grand March, and Arthur's Pride: filling the places.”

Trotting was interrupted from 1942-1949 when Richmond Park and the East Fremantle oval were used by the US Armed Forces as a general military base and by the Australians as an anti-aircraft Defence facility. (See the photograph of an Ack-ack gun and personnel, from Small but Strong- a Pictorial History of the Town of East Fremantle, Helene Charlesworth 1997, page 67)

Richmond raceway was demolished and became a housing estate in 1994. Richmond Raceway Turnstiles were retained as a reminder of 63 years of harness racing at Richmond Raceway.

The last race was won by Speedy Cheval on 12th April 1991. A streets in the new development has been named after him.

Later 20th Century / International

No. 4 Parker Street is a single-storey house constructed in brick, concrete and stone, with a low-pitched, fibrous cement roof. It is a very fine expression of the Post-World War II style, with elements of the International style. The house is planned with an irregular form. There are two wings set at an obtuse angle, neither of which are parallel with the street. The house is elevated above rising land with an exposed concrete slab. The slab acts as a balcony and cantilevers over the garage. The garage door has been replaced with a metal door. Concrete stairs lead from the balcony to the garden and there is a wrought-steel balustrade around the terrace edges. Main walls are constructed in brick with a stone spine wall in the northern wing. There is a modest, scaled, front door and windows in a variety of formats. A fixed light window in the northern wing has a concrete surround while the other openings are simply treated. The steel-framed windows have mostly been replaced with aluminium windows and security screens have been added.

There are concerns relating to brick jointing deterioration, concrete ‘cancer’ and steel-work which will require attention in the near future.
