Old Bricks

Port Building

 

Put down the tools

No work today

Time has moved on

The skills have faded away

Years go by

Old men remember like it was yesterday

Soon they disappear

Memories and story’s taken away

If only the old bricks

Could stay

History

(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.

Thousands of years

Your secrets kept away

Are you ready to tell?

I am listening
