Postcards from the Past

Image for Postcards from the Past


This display is a joint Splash Adelaide and City Archives initiative that displays historic postcards of the River Torrens and other garden beautiful scenes in Adelaide.

The postcards were commissioned by the newly formed SA Intelligence and Tourism Bureau around 1906 as a way of promoting Adelaide’s attractions and progress to prospective immigrants and tourists.

Head over to City Archives in Topham Mall to check out this fascinating display by artist Cheri Isabella.
