This chapter discusses the development of port activity to suit the flow of both passengers and cargo to Fremantle. The port trade reflected the growth of Western Australia’s economy during the early twentieth century. It demonstrates that the favourite location of the port and the good railway connections brought the port to the forefront of trade in the state.
