The Adelaide Parklands. A Social History

Kent Town, Wakefield Press, 2011.

Quarto; laminated colour pictorial papered boards; a fine copy.

'Since their inception, the Adelaide Park Lands concept has been used in more than 200 towns and villages in South Australia. The Park Lands themselves have been listed on the National Heritage Register for some time now but little has been written about their cultural and social history. Even less has been documented about their abuse, both by people and governments. All this had to wait until professional historian Patricia Sumerling set out to clearly show their importance and document not only their wealth of history but also their social, economic and cultural importance for the people of Adelaide, then and now'. (South Australian History website) A related circular is loosely inserted.
