We lived there for many, many years, so we can attest to the accuracy of this documentary...

I am surprised that they didn't attest that a large section of the workforce was nomadic, in that it will move to a location for a couple of weeks to dig a hole then move elsewhere for a number of days then return to dig more holes before leaving again.

This is the way.

At the moment, the large nomadic population have been banned from entering the state.

 Having lived there for a year many years ago, I can see by the video, the place has evolved somewhat. No mention of the orange sand and gum trees or the oxide stains on buildings, concrete lions or the healing Freemantle Doctor.

When did you do your time there, Annie? We were in Perth in the 1990s and in the Pilbara in the 1980s. Dunno what we did to deserve such a long sentence, but we are free now...

 I did a lag in Perth as  teen in the mid 80s. Various addresses in Mt Hawthorne and Woodville[?].  From recollection there were always genuine ex convicts living in Leederville. Pre Americas cup. Then returned to NZ for family reasons.

 Not sure why I feel a wave of nostalgia for Freemantle sweeping over me.
