Lost

Protecting our heritage for the future means learning from past mistakes.  There  are many examples where we have failed to protect Adelaide’s heritage, leaving us all poorer as a result.  Hundreds of buildings -grand and small- that helped define the character of the city have disappeared from our streets.  Here, we remember some of the places lost since 1950.

Perhaps you have a story to share about what has been lost.

Some of the buildings lost in Adelaide since 1950:

Grand Central Hotel

Stow Hall

Criterion Hotel

Australian War Widows Building

Theatre Royal

Scots Church, Flinders Street
