“The City of Kensington and Norwood is one of the oldest inner urban areas of Adelaide.  Early colonial descriptions picture a forest of gum trees penetrated by winding creeks full of wildlife and inhabited by the Kaurna people.
Within a decade, the villages of Kensington, Marryatville, Kent Town and Norwood were granted local government.  By 1880, the town of Kensington and Norwood was a major centre, with imposing civic buildings, theatres, institutes, and sporting facilities.
50 Years of Kensington and Norwood provides unique insights into the settlement of this district.  The reprinting of this book is an initiative of the City of Kensington and Norwood’s Cultural Heritage Program.”
