Illustrated with Black and White Photographs and sketches by David Kelly. 200 pages Beltana is a semi-ghost town 540 kilometres north of Adelaide and is known for continuing to exist long after the reasons for its existence had ceased. The town's history began in the 1870s with the advent of copper mining in the area, construction of the Australian Overland Telegraph Line and The Ghan railroad and began to decline in 1941 with the beginning of coal mining at Leigh Creek. The fortune of the town was sealed by the 1983 realignment of the main road away from the town. Beltana has important links with the overland telegraph, transcontinental railway, mining, outback services, Australian Inland Mission and also has Afghan sites relating to its past as a camel-based transport centre. ID196811

Includes a lengthy preamble by Derek Whitelock on Adelaide at the time the book was first published and a brief biography of Thistle Anderson [Mrs Herbert Fisher]. This is followed by a facsimile of Thistle Anderson's book.

Nevertheless it still went into 10 editions - proving a best seller. A fascinating glimpse of the life and customs of Adelaide at the beginning of the twentieth century ID251432

S.T. Gill The South Australian Years 1839-1852, Appleyard, Ron; Fargher, Barbara and Radford, Ron
12 Appleyard, Ron; Fargher, Barbara and Radford, Ron S.T. Gill The South Australian Years 1839-1852
Adelaide Art Gallery of South Australia 1986 0730807940 / 9780730807940 1st Edition Softcover 
Oblong Small Quarto Size [approx 21x26cm]. Very Good condition - Card Covers. Illustrated with colour and black & white reproductions. Exhibition catalogue. 120 pages Gill arrived in Adelaide, aged 21 and established a studio in 1840 calling for those 'desirous of obtaining a correct likeness' of themselves and their families, friends, animals and residences to contact him. His activities soon expanded to include street scenes and public events, including the newly discovered copper mines at Burra Burra as well as the departure of Charles Sturt's expedition for the interior on 8 October 1844. His sketching tours of the districts surrounding Adelaide, produced a number of watercolours. Gill went with John Horrocks' expedition to the Flinders Ranges in 1846 and his watercolours and pencil sketches provide a narrative of this fateful trip, which saw Horrocks die after being accidentally shot. In 1852, following a series of personal tragedies including bankruptcy and ill health, Gill joined a large group of South Australians heading for the Mount Alexander gold fields, Victoria. Originally intending to turn his hand to digging for gold, he soon returned to portraying images of everyday life, depicting life on the gold fields and the emergence of substantial towns like those of Ballarat and Bendigo. ID272811
