2021 marks the centenary of the completion of the Port Adelaide Workers Memorial. It celebrates the contribution of activists from all walks of life who have devoted their lives to improving conditions for local working people. Scattered throughout the Port, the Labour of Love images capture labour in the Port, campaigns for better working conditions, and portraits of people honoured on the Memorial. The images have been sourced from the State Library, unions, and descendants.
Artist Rachel Harris (Bit Scribbly Design) casts her disruptive eye over our Port, carefully camouflaging a cheeky contemporary twist to each image. We encourage you to do a double take!
The Labour of Love project is a collaboration between the Port of Adelaide National Trust and the SA Maritime Museum, and is funded by Port Adelaide Enfield Council.
