A History Worth Sharing

The Cottage Homes’ long and fascinating history is being shared across metropolitan Adelaide, during a 3-month display roadshow.

Having commenced in September and continuing to mid-December, The Cottage Homes is making its history publicly accessible to the South Australian community. With displays in seven metropolitan council areas, The Cottage Homes has commissioned beautifully designed banners, encapsulating the rich history of the organisation, and the impact it has had on the lives of South Australians in need.   

Many thanks to the incredible efforts of Dr Valerie Liddle and Barbara Ogden, who have painstakingly and lovingly searched through historical records and archives. Graphic designers de.co carefully and creatively turned this collection of historical photos, letters, documents, and stories into visually appealing and easy to read banners.  Dedicated volunteer, and Glenelg visitor, John McDonnell has personally overseen the historical roadshow, as it moves from council to council.

The historical roadshow will conclude with displays at the Glenelg Library from 14-25 November and the Woodville Civic Library from 28 November to 9 December.
