Perth Royal Show in the 1940s
In August 2020 the announcement below by Peter Cooper, CEO of the Royal Agricultural Society of WA was published.
“It is with genuine sadness that, in conjunction with the State Government, we confirm the cancellation of the 2020 Perth Royal Show”.
As COVID forced another event cancellation we reflected on the 30 years AJ Baker & Sons displayed products in a corporate pavilion like the one pictured in the late 1940s. We showcased our range of household and commercial refrigerators.
The Baker kids were excited each year as they were able to store all their showbags at the pavilion!
According to the Perth Royal Show Facebook page, the show was founded on January 3, 1834 at a historic meeting of the Royal Agriculture Society of Western Australia, they decided to hold an annual show – this show came to be known as the “Fair and Cattle Show”.
