Adelaide

On a recent trip to Adelaide I took the camera for a quick walk around the CBD, (we were staying at Glenelg, a beach side area).  For years we lived in Adelaide and not once had I  visited the old wings of the State Library.  Well what a treasure they are.  If you are in Adelaide then I suggest that one take a visit to the Mortlock wing of the State Library, located on North Terrace.  It really is a lovely old building.  If you are lucky enough and the Geographical Society is open then go in and have a chat.  Perhaps if you show enough interest then the caretaker may take you to the top floor of the library, exclusive use by the Geographical Society to see their collection of works.  You may get to see the Library from this vantage point.
