Compiled by John Howell, of Rundle Street, Adelaide, this Almanac and
Directory is a useful resource for historians with an interest in Adelaide and
its residents in this era.
Divided into three main sections - an almanac, a directory, and other
information. The almanac contains a diary and calendar for the year 1872, as
well as a farming and gardening calendar. The directory which is contained in
about 50 pages covers Adelaide (North and South) and Port Adelaide, listing the
householders alphabetically, together with their occupations and addresses.
The third section deals with laws, government and parliamentary information,
banks, post offices, medical personnel and railway timetables, and is an ideal
reference for learning about the social history of the time.
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.
