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.

Published by Theophilus Parsons Pugh, the Pugh's Almanac and Directories were published from 1866 through until 1927. This edition published in 1881, was it's 23rd year of publication ... and was still 'the book of the time'. The Almanac part contains all the regular useful information such as a calendar, a diary of events for the year, Queensland parliamentary record, gardening calendar, government departments, even a listing of those in the legal profession, medical officers, ministers of religion, surgeons, banks, masonic lodges, even the newspapers of the region including when each is issued etc. You will also find meteorological observations, postal information, population, ports and
harbours, and so much more.

The Directory is more than useful too, listing not only a 'Country Postal Directory' covering those on stations in 'settled' and 'unsettled' districts. With these you will find the station name, the district, the nearest post-office, and the names of the owners of the station. The 'Towns Directory' lists the major towns listed alphabetically with the facilities available in each (ie. hospital, pastoral society etc), together with the trades and occupations of those living there - together with their name and address.

Now available to use CD-ROM, this CD consists of high quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
