I was going through Adelaide just the other day and thought the same thing. People rag on it all they want but I'm proud to call myself an Adelaidian.

Very nice photos, thanks a lot

Adelaide IMO is the only city which can rival Melbourne in terms of old world charm and prestige, in Australia. So many old buildings, so much history, so elegant. I think that Melbourne wins out because not only does it have lots of these types of buildings, but it has better known ones such as Flinders St Station, Myer Emporium, Royal Exhibition Building, Captain Cook's Cottage, Block Arcade etc.

But enough about Melbourne. Adelaide is the clear second in my books, and instead of people bagging it all the time, they should take the positives. Adelaide has its own unique charm and charisma and isn't just a modern concrete jungle like Perth.

Very nice. I see they still haven't finished the section of North Tce in front of UniSA.

I really like the T&G, and also the Bavarian style place on Pulteney Street.

Does the roof of the Colonial Mutual look the same now, because it looks really cool in the old shot.

I've never liked the paintwork of the Epworth building. Here's something I put together quickly:
Edit: Oh god. That's hideous. I apologise.
