Throwback Thursday- A look back at a decade ago in the Express

Recent Throwback Galleries:

It's our favourite time of the week a chance to reflect on the changes in Esperance, the faces and the fun that was being had 10 years ago this week.

Making headlines in July of 2009 was an assurance from Esperance Police and the Esperance Shire that they were confident that the installation of a fourth closed-circuit television (CCTV ) camera outside the 24-hour Caltex Station would decrease crime and anti-social behaviour.

The device - a video camera that transmitted a signal to the Esperance Police Station - was to be positioned on Dempster Street in the first week of August.

The camera cost $27,000 and was funded by Caltex, local businesses, the Esperance Bay Rotary Club and the shire. It will also monitor the Dempster Street bus stop, the Soundshell, and adjoining businesses with a powerful zoom camera.
