Topic: Boer War Memorial

Presenter: Jan Sim

Where is the Boer War Memorial you may ask? The artist was Adrian Jones and it is located in a very prominent position in the city and I am sure you have past it many times without realising.

The life-size (3.4m high) bronze statue of the mounted Bushman was both carved and cast in England. Its energy and patriotic mien were noted even before it left for Adelaide on the liner Wakool in April 1904. A photograph of the statue greatly impressed King Edward. The Princess of Wales and several generals visited Jones’ studio to view the work.

Cost: Adult $10pp
