Description :

In January 1976 a clairvoyant painter predicted that Adelaide would be engulfed by a tidal wave. Some residents panicked and fled, others such as Premier Don Dunstan, were convinced the threat was nonsense.

This newspaper article reports on the scenes at Adelaide's Glenelg beach as Dunstan and a crowd awaited the predicted tidal wave.
