As the auries became smawer, an mair landawners namit their awn estates, the number o these early “suburbs” reached 90. Bi the 1940s this wis becomin a problem, so the Port Adelaide Council muivit tae reduce the number o local destrict auries tae 18, in 1945. The boondaries an names o the suburbs wur further stabilised when postcodes were introduced to Australia in 1967.[2]
