Do You Know About Perth’s History?
Richard Offen is a historian, lecturer, broadcaster and overall champion for Perth. First visiting our city in 2001, he said it was love at first site so to speak. The weather, open space and greenery within our city are no comparison to gloomy UK and its wet weather, where Offen originates from. Working with Heritage Perth, they aimed to put the expression “Perth has no history” to bed! Developing walking tours around Perth they managed to attract a lot of Perth locals who were interested in knowing more about its history. Richard continues to educate people of Perth’s Heritage through his books “Lost Perth” & “Perth Then and Now”. They feature photos of different locations in Perth, it’s remarkable to see how far we as a city have come. Although Richard is now retired he says he’s busier than ever and will continue to promote Perth and it’s abundance of history.
