'Statues and monuments fill streets and museums all over the world.  Every monument tells a tale, not only of its subject but of the society that erects it.

Adelaide's founders cherished the uniqueness of the city's parks and boulevards and filled them with noble statues.  Many of these masterpieces still stand tall and hold an important legacy from the past.  In Silent Witnesses, Simon Cameron tells the stories behind thirty-six of Adelaide's major statues and monuments - tales of humanity, heroism, philanthropy and tragedy.'
