Published by John. W. Butler, this 'National Directory of South Australia' is a goldmine of information for historians who have an interest in the colony of South Australia and the city of Adelaide in this era.
Covering the WHOLE of South Australia, this Directory really is a must for anyone looking for family in South Australia in 1867. In the 300+ pages it lists literally thousands of people who lived and worked throughout South Australia at this time. Each section is divided into a District, with the head of the household listed, with their occupation and address. For the country areas this includes many, many farmers, together with their 'Section Number' and town.
Divided into four main sections: an alphabetical directory which is also divided into four sections and covers all districts in South
Australia, a squatters’ directory, a government & official directory and a general information section. Please note, the map that was in the original is not included in this facsimile copy.
Find out where your South Australian relatives were 150 years ago? Find out who else lived in the town, and what other businesses where there? This really does make for a fascinating read, let alone for the historical usefulness of it as well.
High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
