The Friends of the University of Adelaide Library invite you to an event with Lance Campbell and Mick Bradley on Thursday 11 April, 2013, at 6.00 for 6.30pm in the Ira Raymond Exhibition Room, Barr Smith Library, University of Adelaide.

The Wakefield Press book City Streets is a local bestseller. It is inspired by the efforts of printer Gustav Hermann Baring.  In 1936 when South Australia was 100 years old, Baring celebrated with style. His mammoth publication Progressive Adelaide was both a catalogue of commerce and a labour of love which captured the State and its capital in photographs. 75 years later, inspired by Progressive Adelaide, photographer Mick Bradley and writer Lance Campbell set out in Baring’s footsteps to photograph every location whether the buildings are still there or not. Lance Campbell has gone looking for the stories those buildings can tell.  City Streets revisits Progressive Adelaide today and provides a fascinating juxtaposition of then and now  – the same city on the same page. This is a unique book about a unique city.
