Charles Todd came to Adelaide as an ambitious 29 year old in 1855. The first Government Astronomer and Meteorologist in SA, his pioneering work in these fields remains important today. Local historian, author and academic, Tony Rogers' recently published book, ‘The Weatherman from Greenwich’, explores Todd’s fascinating life as a meteorologist in the young colony. These were exciting times. We learn not just about Todd, but much about daily life in England and in SA where the settlers were already forging a different community. City of Churches?
