Look both ways XVIII – Adelaide 2 sides

Parks and power

It’s been a while since the last Look both ways which was back in London, in pre-pandemic times.

Sometimes you don’t see what is right in front of you. This pair of images came from a walk into Adelaide’s East End dining precinct. The image above is of Rymill Park, just one of forty open areas that make up the 760,000 square metres of the Adelaide Parklands that surround the city centre- spaces for recreation, sport, cultivation, nature, and the city’s lungs.

What I hadn’t noticed was this tight corridor of industrial edifices behind the old Adelaide Electric Supply Company building- an urban counterpoint to the pastoral scenes just on the other side of East Terrace, the glory and the grunge, contrasting aspects of a city.
