The West End of Adelaide, 1870-1930

This essay was first published in Brian Dickey (ed), William Shakespeare’s Adelaide 1860-1930, Adelaide, Association of Professional Historians, 1992, pp.27-41, and is reprinted here with minor changes.

Patricia Sumerling has been a professional historian for over twenty years, including work on the heritage study of the City of Adelaide. This led to A.A. Edwards, and more generally the history of hotels in SA. With the aid of the History Trust she is working on a biography of Edwards, on whom she most recently published, 'Bert Edwards and the West Adeliade Football Club,' in the 'Journal of the Historical Society of South Australia', no. 36, 2008, pp.58-68.
