A Penny For Your Thoughts
Princess Margaret Hospital impacted so many Western Australian lives over its 109-year history. While that vital work and support continues at the new Perth Children’s Hospital, the legacy of PMH is very much a part of the fabric of our state and our community. It holds a special place in the hearts of us all – and reflecting and respecting that legacy for generations to come is top of mind as we work to deliver the new Subi East inner-city village.
This is an opportunity for anyone around the world to say a final farewell to the hospital before demolition is completed as part of the Subi East project.
You are invited to share your personal photos, memories and experiences of Perth’s Princess Margaret Hospital via a unique digital time capsule. Enter your personal story below to have it preserved in time, for Western Australians to uncover 109 years from now - the same length of time that PMH was in service. Submissions will remain open for the duration of the demolition process, expected to be complete early 2022.
Once submitted, the stories and reflections will remain confidential until the time capsule is opened. Technology would have changed by then, but just as we have currently, specialist services will exist to retrieve the information for our future generations.
To begin your submission, start off by entering your name and upload your photo in the section below. (If you choose not to upload a photo, just close the upload box that will pop up). You will see your name and photo appear on a virtual penny. Then simply scroll down the page and follow the instructions.
