The Historic South-West Corner of Adelaide

This booklet was the result of a short project, initiated by the Adelaide City Council, which aimed to produce a picture of the identity and nature of the community living south of Gouger Street and west of Whitmore Square, a residential and partly light-industrial area of the city that for some time held its own character to be highly distinctive and self-supportive. It was published as Bridget Jolly, Historic South West Corner Adelaide, 2nd edn rev., ed. Bernard O’Neil, Adelaide, Corporation of the City of Adelaide, 2005 (first published 2003), and appears here by permission of the City Council.

Bridget Jolly, who holds an MA from Flinders University and a PhD from the University of South Australia, has been a professional historian for some thirteen years, and has presented conference papers and published articles on Buckminster Fuller, agricultural and architectural history topics, and Kangaroo Island's history. She is currently working towards publication of a book on aspects of Kangaroo Island's history, 1890-1950.
