Bunker on Gallipoli

Another great location for TWOP headquarters, these small offices on Gallipoli Street Lathlain. I can see myself sitting one of those vinyl chairs with a rotary dial phone, sending out a fleet of Holden HQ’s (3 on the tree) to Rockingham, Morley, Kalamunda, Rockingham…

    If I ever need a location for my dystopian science fiction film, I’ll be sure to remember this place.

    I’m trying to work up a bad pun involving the the term “dreadnought” because it reminds me of the pointy end of one of those old ships, but I’m not having any luck.

  6. How Bizzare… I used to work here in the late 80′s. A friend with whom I studied at W.A.I.T. owned it for a few years. He went to live in the Czech Republic so he must have used as an introduction to their architecture. The company that owned it afer him imported concentrated whisky then watered it down, then bottled it. Probably more lucrative than our enterprise…

    We fixed Atomic-Adsorption Spectrophotometers… Well refurbished would be more accurate. The main business was the supply of equipment to small Gold mines. Lovely position, at lunch time i could cycle around the river.

    Looking at this again, I’d say it’s a perfect HQ. Great windows for firing guns out of.

    I walked past this again recently and figured it must have featured in TWOP by now. Googling “Worst of Perth Lathlain bunker” brought it up as the first hit.
    PS It’s much uglier than it looks in that photo!
