Adelaide Arcade, Approximately 1886 by Samuel White Sweet

$0.00

Adelaide Arcade, looking south from Rundle Street. A pair of Atlantes figures support the ceiling and form a guard to the entrance. The architect's extensive use of cast iron, plate glass and electric light made it a progressive building at the time, in fact it was one of Adelaide's first buildings to use electric lighting. The east frontage of the Arcade is 55 yards west of Twin Street. The width of the Arcade from shop front to shop front is 6 yards. It was opened on December 12th, 1885.
