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

  • Sport

  • Land and settlement
