Village in City – Walk the SE corner of Adelaide

Wed 9 Mar 2016

Walk name/location
Village in City – Walk the SE corner of Adelaide
Walk grade
Summer Walks

In the late 19th Century, people from all social levels

lived in the south eastern corner of the city. The wealthy

occupied mansions on East and South Terrace, the growing

middle class lived in Victorian villas in Halifax and Gilles

Streets, while the intervening small cottages were filled by

workers who were able to walk to work or work from home.

Pastoralists, government workers, publicans, policemen and

plasterers all lived in close proximity. However in the 1920s

and 1930s it became fashionable to move to the suburbs

on the other side of the south and east Park Lands.
