Author: Curtis, Leonard Samuel
Publisher: Adelaide: Vardon & Sons
Issue Date: 1907
Abstract: "In launching this volume into the world of books, the Author's desire has been to present, in an artistic, clear and concise manner, a descriptive and illustrated narrative of the City of Adelaide - otherwise known as "The Queen City of the South" - as the heart centre of the great State of South Australia, emphasising its principal public buildings, its leading business houses and its tourists' attractions. Also to present in up to date authentic figures, and in plain brief language , the chief statistical conditions built up in the past history of the State, in its industrial, commercial, political, and civil development. All literary verbosity is excluded, and only such matter-of-fact language used as is in accord with a book whose absolute reliability is stamped upon every page by the unerring science of photography." -- Author's Preface.
