Pugh's Directories of Queensland, the best known of the Queensland ones are hard to come by, but thanks to Archive CD Books Australia and their association with various archives and lenders - these are being released for all to use.
This Almanac and Directory for 1878 is the twentieth year of publication, and consists of not only a Brisbane Suburbs Directory, and a Country Postal Directory, but also a listing of Principal Stations together with their Owners. This makes for interesting reading for those that had family on the land in Queensland during this period.
Also included is numerous other miscellaneous information, such as a calendar, a diary of events for 1878, Queensland parliamentary record, gardening calendar, government departments, even listing of those in the legal profession, medical officers, ministers of religion, banks, masonic lodges, etc. You will also find meterological observations, postal information, population, ports and harbours, and more. This is an incredible publication that would have been 'the' book to consult for just about anything in you were living in Queensland in 1875.
The country towns trade directory lists the towns together with their stations, and station owners (so it is not as comprehensive as latter years of these directories). The Brisbane directory lists the occupations alphabetically with names under each, together with their street name.
