Union Lane

The only Adelaide Street directory I have is a Gregory's from 1996. A lot of changes have taken place in the city since 1996. Looking at Rundle Mall in the directory, checking to see what streets I still needed to visit, I found a street called Union Lane. I hadn't seen this Lane before and was pretty sure that it was no longer there.

I decided to do a little ghost hunting.

Union Lane is now the City Cross Arcade, covered up and over and filled with shops. They are renovating the Arcade and have pulled down the Rundle Mall facade, exposing the sides of the buildings that would have defined Union Lane. In a way, it's still there.

I wonder what other secrets lie behind the bricks and under the bitumen of this city?
