Written in 1901 with the aim to produce a 'proper history of South Australia', this book gives a general sketch of the history of Adelaide and its vicinity as well as including a substantial biographical section.

Beautifully presented with illustrations and photos scattered throughout, this book focuses on the people who made South Australia what it is, and includes chapters on the forerunners, architects, founders, builders, citizens, husbandmen, legislators, producers, and the railway builders, as well as the jubilee.

This is followed by a biographical section which has about 220 separate biographies of influential men from different walks of life throughout South Australia's history including doctors, lawyers, ministers of religion, businessmen, captains and professors. They are quite detailed, ranging in length from half a page to several pages and many are accompanied by photographs.

The book also contains an appendix which includes sections on population, mayors etc, the commonwealth, and notes on the constitution. This is a beautiful book to read and a useful tool for South Australian historians.
