Where is it?

Post by Wayno »

Thought it would be fun to start a "where is it?" thread. See how well we know our own CBD :-)

So i'll go first - Where is this?

Sorry, no banana! :-) It's a 1996 Civic Trust brass award plaque on this building - corner of Rundle & Bent St's.

I forget why the award was granted, something about arts/architectural achievements in Rundle St

The award was for the Ngapartji Multimedia Centre - the internet cafe/wine bar + it & multimedia training centre. They introduced Adelaide, in 1996, to free alfresco internet access for people to display porn to fellow Rundle St shoppers, and courses in how to create websites worthy of Geocities.
