Memories of Linden Park

Presented by Chas Grimes

Charles (Chas) Grimes will provide us with his personal recollections of Linden Park from the early 1950s to the present, over half a century in which time the landscape has changed from cow pastures to apartments. Seen by some as a poor cousin to its wealthy adjoining suburbs, Linden Park is now coming into its own with many desirable developments taking advantage of its peaceful and clean environment.

Chas Grimes is a member of our Society and pharmacist by profession. On graduation in 1953 he settled on Linden Park as a location to establish his practice. Over weekends and holidays he and his father laboured for three years to build his business premises. Chas is active in many community organisations including the Metropolitan Male Choir, Adelaide Technical High School Old Scholars Association and the Burnside Anti-graffiti Team.
