Lord Mayor launches history of Boans Department Store

Around 200 ex-employees are expected at the Boan family’s launch of Boans for Service by David Hough this Thursday 23 April.

Boans for Service is a lavishly illustrated ninety-year history of one of Western Australia’s best-known department stores. It will be launched by Lisa Scaffidi, The Right Hon. Lord Mayor of the City of Perth at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

Author David Hough said the story of Boans Ltd was the story of Western Australia.

“It had never been done before.

“The best part of writing the book was getting into records not made public before, meeting and talking with dozens of Boans one-time staff and hearing the variety of customer stories from those for whom Boans played a formative part in their lives,” said Hough.
