Present and Future

Time fades




(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.
