Travels in time: the Barossa Valley in the 1850s, around 1900, and in the 1940s

This sequence of ‘time tours’ of South Australia’s Barossa was written by Susan Marsden (when State Historian at the History Trust of South Australia) as part of the case study in the tourism textbook by Tim Clemow and Susan Marsden, Tourism and Australian multicultural heritage, printed by Adelaide College of TAFE in 1989. The textbook and course were developed as a combined History Trust of South Australia and School of Tourism project to create Australian-based tourism material for studies of different cultural groups and their heritage. The project was funded by a Bicentennial grant through the Committee to Review Australian Studies in Tertiary Education (CRASTE). The author thanks History SA for permission to reproduce this section of the work, with minor corrections and amendments.
