THE BANKSIDE VINEYARDS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE BANKSIDE VINEYARDS. Mr. Thomas Hardy, of Bankside, came off well considering all things. His premises ad join the TorrenB, but profiting by his experience of former years he has had the banks raised by means of a substantial wall. He calculates that the water rose fully SO feet, and but for the timely assistance he received the water would have rushed into his cellars and tbuB have done incalcuable damage. A por tion of his garden was for the nonce trans formed into a tributary of the TorrenB, and all the top ploughed soil waB washed away, but beyond this his orchards have ? (sustained little or no damage. . An immense quantity of debris has collected on the banks, and amongst the maBses of dead trees, &c, portions of a bridge had became stranded.

THE REEDBEDS DISTRICT. PLUCKY TROOPERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE REEDBEDS DISTRICT. PLUCKY TROOPERS, An immense amount of damage has been done in the Reedbeds district, and this is not to be wondered at when we consider that the TorrenB pours tbe whole of its waters into the low-lying lands situated therein, A visit to the Reedbeds on Wednesday afternoon gave one the impression that the greater portion of the district hadlbeen transformed into a huge lake. Acres and acres of lucern were under water, and the sight presented of wrecked gardens and washed-out homesteads was indeed a pitiable one. Mr. A. Rowell, of Lockleys, lives within a short distance' of the river, and bis large garden, nearly 20 acres in extent, was entirely submerged.

A complete river waB formed through his garden, and the storm waters farrowed out a deep channel. Mrs. Houston ...
