Hear about 19th century South Australian patent applications and the stories they tell.

The National Archives has recently digitised its collection of South Australian patent applications from the 19th century. Come and find out about how to access these records, the work that has gone into digitising them and some of the fascinating inventions and inventors found in these records.

This talk is part of a monthly series, SA Selections from the National Archives, that showcases newly available online content.
