Engineering a City #4

From securing a fresh water supply to planning and construction of tramways, Engineers have helped to shape the city of Adelaide.

Once you start looking closely on the streets of Adelaide the legacy of early engineers is evident all around us.

Edward Frome, the third surveyor-general of South Australia and colonial engineer, had the task of building Adelaide’s roads. The first constructed in 1839 from Port Adelaide and from Glenelg to the the city  centre as planned by Colonel Light. By 1907 Adelaide’s streets were lit by electricity and much of the structure of the city we know today was laid down.

Note: This isn't the location of the cache, just the location of the historic site.
