'In this book the history of South Australia is illuminated trough the delightful sketches of Trevor Goulding and Vern Branson's lively text. Much of the architecture which contributes to the charm of Adelaide is to be found within a stone's throw of the Torrens Lake. Captain John Hindmarsh, the first Governor of the colony, built his rude hut on the banks of the Torrens where the Railway Station, the Casino and the Festival Centre now stand; nearby is the historic Legislative Council building, which housed the first parliament; and along North Terrace are Government House, the University, Bonython and Elder Halls, Scots Church and Holy Trinity, enhancing a boulevard devoted to learning, culture and sanctity.
Adelaide can be justly proud of its heritage. This sketchbook invites the reader on an absorbing and informative stroll among some of the landmarks which make that heritage such a distinctive one.'
