Adelaide in 1839 as viewed south-east from North Terrace, including Holy Trinity Church. (The church tower lost its "peaked cap" in 1844.)

North Terrace is one of the four terraces that bound the central business district of the city of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. It runs east-west, along the northern edge of the CBD.[1][2]

Hmmm, well it seem that I still need to write something to push down the text a bit so that it takes up enough room that the table I constructed will start below the first photograph, which I thought it would be nice to keep in its original position. All things considered, I would rather not have gone to all this trouble, but what the heck.

Pulteney Street is the only one of the city's north-south thoroughfares (aside from East and West Terrace) which does not continue north through the parklands. Folklore has it that the Bonython donation was made on the condition that a hall be built opposite Pulteney Street, thus blocking any future path through the parklands and preventing the division of the campus by a major thoroughfare.
