Do You Remember Adelaide in its Heyday?
Have you ever looked at a heritage building and wondered what it looked like in its heyday? I do, all the time. I love old buildings, I just can't help but wonder what they were like when they were new. What were they used for, what did the people who went there do, how did they dress; so many questions come to mind.

Since 1988, the City of Adelaide through its Heritage Incentives Scheme has provided substantial funding to property owners to assist in gaining professional advice and documentation and to undertake conservation works to facilitate the retaining, reinforcing and reinstating of buildings with heritage significance.

To celebrate 30 successful years of the Scheme and the City of Adelaide's commitment to protect, preserve and promote Adelaide's built heritage, the City of Adelaide is hosting the Bringing Adelaide's History to Colour Photography Exhibition in Rundle Mall from Friday 23 March to Sunday 8 April 2018.

The exhibition captures moments of Adelaide's history over the last two centuries and displays them in photographs which have been reimaged in vibrant colour, providing a new and exciting way to view our past and enable us to see and answer the questions asked.

You will see Adelaide in its heyday. Imagine Rundle Mall no longer a mall and King William Road and Hindley Street filled with horse drawn vehicles rather than the very modern cars and trams we see today.

Visit the Mall over Easter and take the opportunity to visit the Exhibition. Free and timed, metered parking is available around the edges of the Adelaide CBD or check Adelaide Metro for public transport options.

This free exhibition is located down the eastern side of Rundle Mall and is open from 9 am to 9 pm each day. Come along and imagine life in Adelaide in years gone by.
