Description
 
Almanacs and directories are a valuable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history. This one particularly so because it is so early.

South Australia was proclaimed as a colony in 1836, so this early almanac and directory gives us an insight into life in the young settlement. Listing 'principal merchants and inhabitants' from Adelaide and Port Adelaide, these are arranged alphabetically by surname, and each entry lists occupation and address.

The full title explains a little more as to what is included: "Royal South Australian Almanack for 1839: Containing a daily calendar, a gardener and farmer's directory, a list of government officers, the addresses of the principal merchants and inhabitants, and all useful information regarding the province of South Australia".

This is a valuable resource for early South Australia and its settlers.

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.
