The Edmund Wright House in Adelaide, built as the Bank of South Australia in 1878, was saved from demolition by a public outcry in 1971 and named for its prolific architect.

While we know a bit about the building, what do we know about the man behind it?

Keith Conlon, media icon and Chair of the SA Heritage Council, will be touring this and other buildings by Edmund Wright in an upcoming Festival of Architecture and Design tour on July 21. More info here.

Keith joins Jennie Lenman to share some history.
