This 900 page volume is full of historical information on not only Queensland
itself, but also the towns and people that made it during 1894.
More than an
Almanac, and more than a directory, this volume was a must-have for everyone of
the time. It contains information on events that were scheduled throughout the
year of 1887, gardening advice, biographies of notable 'men of the time' in
Queensland, government and law information, medical practitioners, ministers of
religion, postage and telegraph information together with costs, railways
stations and their fares, stations and station owners ... and so much more.
The Directory is just as useful, if not more, covering not only the city of
Brisbane, but also the country towns around Queensland. The services in each
(even including various societies ... and their members) are detailed, as are
occupations alphabetically together with the persons name, and address.
