Light Buildings, Adelaide

Light Buildings, AdelaideThe Light Buildings, Adelaide stand in Light Square, named in honour of William Light (1786 - 1839) who surveyed and planned the original layout for Adelaide. Light is buried in the square and it could be that the buildings were constructed around the centenary of his death in 1939 but that is pure supposition on my part.

While the flagpole and lettering on the tower are probably original, I doubt that the decals of the naked women are.
