Queensland became an Australian colony on 6 June 1859 after separation from New South Wales, Brisbane was chosen as its capital. Written in 1909, Barton's Jubilee History of Queensland takes a thorough look over the fifty years that had passed since its inception, and details all the political, industrial and social development in both words and pictures.

To make it a complete history, this work actually begins with the landing of the early explorers and the discovery of Moreton Bay and Brisbane River as well as early settlement. This is followed by the struggle for independence, the history of the government in Queensland, and the City of Brisbane. Divided into 15 chapters, each covers a different topic, such as ports, churches of Brisbane, social and religious, pastoral, agricultural and mining, manufacturers, reminiscences, a chronology ... and so much more.

With over 300 photographs included in the 400 page book, it shows you the history visually. Many are of people and businesses, as well as some of scenes. A valuable record for those with an interest in Queensland and those involved with its history from 1859-1909.
