Adelaide Oval Scoreboard


State Heritage Place

City Archives, 1258ITEM0011[66], circa 1940

The Adelaide Oval Scoreboard, completed in 1911, is an excellent example of an architect's solution to a potentially mundane commission. Manually operated over four storeys, the Scoreboard incorporated new features including a novel approach to the layout of information which gave unparalleled detail on the progress of cricket matches, only surpassed with the advent of modern electronic scoreboards.
