This directory gives a unique view of life as it was back in the 1890s in Queensland - an invaluable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history.
This directory is unique in its coverage - in that it contains not just a post office directory, listing residents together with their address (street-by-street), but also the following directories:
- country alphabetical directory
- post and telegraph
- ports and harbours
- justices of the peace
- tariffs and licences
- government officials
- societies and institutions
This directory contains hundreds of thousands of people, many with occupations and addresses. The telephone directory contains those who had a telephone and were connected to the Brisbane Exchange, together with address and phone number - one of the very earliest phone directories available!
This CD contains high quality scanned images of the original book, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
