Colonel's Light Vision Statue, Adelaide

Colonel's Light Vision Statue, Adelaide

The first surveyor-general of Adelaide, South Australia, Colonel William Light designed a layout and development programme for the city. This plan is now known as "Light's Vision". Notable aspects of Light's plan are that the city center is laid out in a grid-like pattern, with squares in the center of the city and in the centers of the four quarters of the city, and the city is surrounded by Parklands. Light's work was acknowledged by the "Light's Vision commemoration" statue, by Glaswegian sculptor Birnie Rhind, which was unveiled in the northwest of Victoria Square in 1906, but was moved from Victoria Square to Montefiore Hill in 1938. Since then, the statue has depicted Light pointing at the City of Adelaide below. His body is buried under the statue bearing his name in Light Square.

Legend has it that William Light stood on Montefiore Hill in 1837, pointed at what would one day become the Adelaide city center, and said "This is the place for a city".
