Entitled – Adelaide. King William Street, Looking South. 

From a Photo by York & Son.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Adelaide. – It is interesting to note that Adelaide has its Brighton, a picturesque marine village to which the inhabitants of the capital resort.

Visitors are permitted to ascend the tower of the General Post Office in King William Street, which is 158ft. in height.

From this elevated standpoint the city, the suburbs, the plains, and the gulf lie at the feet of the beholder.

In whatever direction he may turn, a magnificent panorama meets his view such as few places can rival.

Nothing can give the traveller a more comprehensive idea of the striking situation and beauty of the suburbs of Adelaide than the bird’s-eye view obtained in this way.

As the railway facilities are very complete, the tourist should not omit to pay a visit to the famous mining district of Broken Hill.

Waterfall Gully, famous for its scenery, is within very easy distance by tram; and for those fond of enjoyable promenades there are the Botanic Gardens, comprising an area of 40 acres, and laid out in a really artistic and attractive manner.

Adjoining these gardens are the Park and the Zoological Gardens, liberally maintained by the Government.

Adelaide Oval is beautifully situated on the River Torrens, and may be considered one of the finest cricket grounds in the world.

It is surrounded by beautiful leafy trees, which render the place perfectly cool and delightful on summer evenings, when the city bands frequently give open-air concerts.

At the entrance to Vincent Gulf is Kangaroo Island, and on the east of it is Lake Alexandrina, or the mouth of the Murray, from which point that river is navigable for 1,500 miles up to Albury.

Within a hundred miles of this point is the famous Bura Bura copper mine.

Its original capital was £12,000, on which the dividends paid amounted to £837,000.

If you buy an item and then see it relisted this is because we occasionally have more than one available, each page is
