This rare early almanac and directory gives a fascinating insight into the South Australia of 1851. But it also contains a great deal useful information for the researcher, not just local, family and social history.

Just a sampling of the subjects touched upon in it nearly 300 pages

  • Government
  • The Emigration Act and emigration
  • Industries
  • Agriculture
  • Social and cultural institutions
  • Religion
  • Sport
  • Education
  • Land and settlement
  • Newspapers

An important part of this volume is the directory, which is divided into three sections: Adelaide and Suburban, Albert Town and Port, and Country. The many advertisements included make for fascinating and informative reading.
