Although concentrating on the area that has been the City of Perth since the Local Government boundary changes in 1994, former suburbs in the Towns of Victoria Park, Cambridge and Vincent are also included until that date.
The collection includes books, reports, maps, photographs, oral history interviews and a range of memorabilia.
