WEMBLEY WARE SOCIETY GOES OUT IN SUBIACO
The Wembley Ware group set up a stall at the Subiaco Farmers Market Saturday 11 December 2010. A perfect sunny day and we had so many visitors.
The response was fantastic. Everyone was in favour of there being a Wembley Ware Museum/Heritage Centre built on the Australian Fine China site in Hay Street, Subiaco.
Many commented with sadness at the amount of history which has been destroyed by the developers, on the site which is heritage listed. Some of the people we spoke to were former workers at the china factory. It was great to meet them and to hear about the work they did in the china production
