    Thatched House, North Terrace, Adelaide (Acre 17) thumbnail image
    Public

    This thatched building on Adelaide's acre 17 was occupied from 1849 by recently arrived surgeon Dr. James Phillips. It's generally remembered as Phillips' building. But what was it earlier when artist S.T. Gill painted it in 1845?

    Acre 17 was first purchased by C.G. Everard and was still owned by Everard family when in a dilapidated condition. To what use was Everard's thatched building being put in 1845?

    These are working notes and your corrections / additions are welcome.
