"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.
