Adelaide: Between the Wars
A stunning collection of maps and rare photographs of Adelaide CBD between WWI and WWII. Between 1924 and 1926 the Fire Underwriters’ Association of South Australia produced a series of detailed maps of the main business district of Adelaide.
In this book, each of these maps are divided into six sections, showing in detail the businesses and dwellings of each street, as well as providing some insight to the architecture and features of each property. To accompany each of these maps, the facing pages show photographs of street scenes, businesses and people from within, or adjacent to, that map.
