Adelaide on the Town exhibition

City Library

Library on the town fancy dress ball december

To complement Female Archetypes, this History Hub display showcases objects and photographs from the Civic Collection and the Historic Picture Collection depicting moments of celebration and enjoyment of the city. From invitations to Town Hall events, posters and photographs of proceedings within the Adelaide Town Hall and throughout Adelaide generally; this display showcases some special collection items which haven't been presented before. With a theatrical thread weaving through the display, we can appreciate how important festivals and the arts have been in Adelaide. From organ concerts, to children's fancy dress events, Lord Mayor's balls, and the Town Hall Easter cabaret; we can see that the magic of our city is characterized by good entertainment and Adelaideans' love for getting out and about.

Available to view within the City Library History Hub until the end of January 2020.
