Scandalous and Scurrilous: Forgotten Men from Proclamation to WWI

Explore South Australia’s scandalous past, from cattle rustlers to Ashton’s hotel and the bodies at the bottom of Government House’s garden. Hear about the Hellfire preacher who caused a riot at the Town Hall and the brilliant progressive lawyer who was certified as an absinthe, woman-addicted lunatic. Discover these and the stories of other men who were mad, bad or simply dangerous to know.
