Present and Future
(Adelaide City secret discovery Compton St. Edited Gimp 2.8)
(Copied from the plaque on the Building)
This small building was originally built as a house
By Edward Moore in 1871. A shopfront was added by the next owner,
baker Mathew Madge, in 1898-99.
Bert Edwards, one of Adelaide’s most colourful and notable citizens,
opened a tea room here in 1913.
It was immensely popular, particularly on Friday nights when the rear of the shop was used for the playing the then illegal game of two-up.
