Introduction

The West End of Adelaide was settled soon after the arrival of the British colonists in 1836. It was a mainly working class residential area serviced by shops, small businesses and industry. For this walking tour the West End covers the main shopping, business and entertainment precinct of Hindley Street and Currie Street up to Morphett Street. It also covers the industrial area of Hindley and Currie Streets from beyond Morphett Street to West Terrace.
