Remember childhood visits to the Adelaide Zoo with a ride in the elephant cart? School lunches and a glass bottle of sun-warmed milk? Spending Saturday night at Downtown or Tilt to play arcade games or go rollerskating? rides at Magic Mountain or Dazzleland, dances at local clubs with local bands, early TV shows and sleeping on the lawn on a hot Adelaide summer night? 'Adelaide Remember When' is the city we remember, in pictures and words.

'Adelaide Remember When' is a book for everyone, as it's a contemporary history of Adelaide primarily from the 1950s through to the 1930s. An era that largely belongs to the baby boomer generation. This book will take readers from that era on a nostalgic stroll down memory lane, while for younger readers it'll give an insight into an Adelaide in bygone days.

'Adelaide Remember When' had its beginnings when former radio personality Bob Byrne first unloaded a few old photos to his website, and the public interest was instant. As a result Bob developed a dedicated Facebook page which is followed by thousands.

This book is a pictorial reminder of beach pavilions, ballrooms, stately old buildings, department stores and the legendary pie cart. The city's equally legendary personalities, games we played as kids, family cars, old trams, magic moments in sport, pop hysteria, early days of television and wireless, the famous 5AD Top 40 Chart and so much more.
