    An evening with Peter Newman β€” converging Fremantle stories.

    Peter Newman has been a part of the Fremantle community since 1974 and has been active in many local issues ever since, particularly saving the railway and stopping freeways through the city and suburbs. He is a Professor of Sustainability at Curtin University and is the Co-ordinating Lead Author for the UN’s IPCC on Transport. In recent years he has been recognised with an Order of Australia and the WA Scientist of the Year but Peter wants to reflect on what it has been like being a part of the Fremantle community with his family over the past decades.

    One hundred years ago this morning:

    Sudden Death.β€”Whilst working on the Fremantle wharf this morning, Michael Bowman was taken ill suddenly, and was conveyed to the Fremantle hospital in the ambulance where he died an hour after being admitted. Later Dr. Williams certified that death was due to natural causes. The deceased was a widower and had two sons, whose whereabouts are unknown.

    My new favourite filter in JOSM: (wikidata=) or child(type:relation wikidata=) (inverted). It finds everything that's linked to Wikidata, to make it easy to find things that still need to be linked.
