Directories are a valuable resource for local, family and social historians
as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history.
This Pugh’s Almanac and Queensland Directory set contains five directories from
1871 to 1875. Each includes country and Brisbane trades directories which list the
names, addresses and professions of many people in Queensland. It also includes
a comprehensive almanac section giving information on weather, events, history
of the colony, the government and more.
Directories are an extremely useful tool for establishing when and where a
person lived. However this is just a starting point. Look further in the
directory to find out more about the society in which they lived, the
occupations they held and the people they knew.
This product provides a great tool for researching Queensland history making
information that is difficult to find plainly and easily accessible on one CD.
