This newspaper article reports on the first night of 10 o'clock closing for South Australian pubs. It features a photograph of South Australian Premier Don Dunstan, who had been instrumental in having the opening hours of pubs revised, enjoying a drink with patrons of a suburban Adelaide pub.

Early closing (6 o'clock) of South Australian pubs had been introduced during the First World War and waschanged after a Royal Commission.
