“The aim of this book, produced by Advertiser Newspapers limited to mark the centenary of “The Advertiser” and “The Chronicle”, is not to traverse South Australia’s history of 122 years – and more particularly the 100 years since 1858 – in the manner of a text book, but to convey the broad sweep of the progress of the Colony, and then the State, from the early formative years, through boom and depression, bumper harvest and drought, to the remarkable industrial expansion and rapid increase in population of the present decade.”
