Description

Image of Barracks Arch, Perth. What remains was the entrance to a much larger three storey building built in 1866 to house the retired Enrolled Pensioner Force and their families. Architect Richard Roach Jewell created an entrance reminiscent of a medieval castle with towers and crenellation, but in brick. Before emigrating, Jewell had been involved in work at Southsea Castle in England. All of the Barracks except the arch and towers was demolished in 1966 so that the Mitchell Freeway could be built.
