This film came about from an assignment for Adelaide* Magazine for the "Unseen Adelaide" series. What struck us about this place was the feeling of going back in time to the not too distant past. It was very quiet except for the odd plane flying over and the hum of the nearby power station. Because of the restricted access there was very little human degradation of the site. Very few broken windows and no graffiti. What was evident though is how nature slow reclaims what man has built from the pigeons that inhabit the buildings to the grass and trees that are starting to overtake the structures. The opening shot is of the morgue that sits in the corner of the complex. Records indicate there were 10 burials in the cemetery between 1887 and 1932.
