Scope and content

The slipways within Fremantle Harbour became the responsibility of the Public Works Department (Harbours and Rivers Branch) in 1942. Prior to this date they had been the responsibility of the Fremantle Harbour Trust. The North Mole slipway was dismantled in 1958 leaving only the slipway of the South Mole operational.

These applications detail work carried out on every vessel slipped at North Mole slipway and South Mole slipway for the periods stated.

Other records relating to the Fremantle Slipways are listed at Records Series No. 1334 (Accounts Books) and Record Series No. 1335 (Logbooks).

(Items in this Record Series were previously listed at the State Records Office at reference: AN 7/23; Accession 1661).
