A valuable history and record of this significant early community close to the city of Adelaide. To quote from the Preface -:"On December 26th, 1902, the Council of the Town of Kensington and Norwood decided at its ordinary meeting to publish a sketch of the rise and progress of the town from the inauguration of Municipal Government in 1853 to the year 1903—the date of the jubilee of the town. This little work to which these lines form the introduction is the outcome of the Council's resolution"
