Re-Opening of the Institute Building for History Month 2011

Our final event for History Month was for the Victoriana Society on the 29th May. For the150th year anniversary of the 1861 opening of the Institute Building on North Terrace in Adelaide, the society held a reenactment of the original official opening. Unfortunately as we were taking part in the reenactment we were unable to take any photos of the event itself. Hopefully I may be able to get copies of the official photos at a later date. The ceremony went for over an hour, which was a lot shorter than the original thankfully. It was concluded by an afternoon tea that was provided by members of the society. 

The following photos are of Nic and myself relaxing in the lending library after the event.
