Young Master Glaskin (pictured to the left) and Oswald Blows (on the right) were photographed between 1905 and 1915. Their images were captured in the State Library of Western Australia digital photographic collection (b2870901, b2874898). In the last century, W.A. has changed a great deal. The background photo was taken at Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe in 2008.
