"When the World's Fair came to South Australia..."

Adelaide's Jubilee International Exhibition 1887-1888


'International exhibitions’ celebrated the works of human minds and hands. Adelaide’s commemorated the 50th anniversary of settlement, and honoured Queen Victoria’s jubilee. A riot of patriotism/imperialism riddled its course with the pomp and jingoism of the period. The purpose-built building, the six-month exhibition, and the uses and fate of the building complete this collective memory of a now-absent building. This 380-page, multi-authored, well-illustrated volume is a  collaboration between the Architecture Museum, School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia, the Professional Historians Association (SA), History SA and Crossing Press, Sydney.

$46.95 RRP, $40 at the exhibition, 9-30 November, and at the launch

For launch on 28 November by the Lord Mayor of Adelaide
