Learn how to access newly digitised architectural drawings of South Australian buildings and hear about the work to make them accessible.

South Australian architectural drawings from series D1051 are being digitised to enable public access. They include original drawings, plans, sketches and elevations of South Australian post offices, drill halls and quarantine stations. Vivid images, many hand coloured, bring buildings from South Australia's past to life including some that are not with us today.

Come and find out how to access these records. Hear about the work that has gone into digitising them and more about some of the buildings that they document.
