This 750+ page volume is full of historical information on not only Queensland itself, but also the towns and people that made it during 1888.
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 major 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.
The towns covered are: Adavale, Allora, Aramac, Barcaldine, Bedouri, Beenleigh, Blackall, Birdsville, Bown, Bundaberg, Burdekin Lower, Burketown, Caboolture, Cairns, Cardwell, Charleville, Charters Towers, Clare, Clermont, Cleveland, Cloncurry, Cooktown, Copperfield, Croydon, Cunnamulla, Dalby, Drayton, Dungeness, Emerald, Esk, Gayndah, Georgetown, Geraldton, Gladstone, Goodna, Goondiwindi, Gregory, Gympie, Hendon, Herberton, Howard, Hughenden, Ida, Ingham, Inglewood, Ipswich, Kimberley, Laidley, Mackay, Maryborough, Maytown, Millchester, Mirani, Mitchell, Mount Britten, Mount Morgan, Mount Perry, Murraburra, Nanango, Nebo, Nerang, Normanton, North Rockhampton, Norton, Port Douglas, Ravenswood, Richmond, Rockampton, Rockwood, Roma, Sandgate, Southport, Stanthorpe, St George, St Lawrence, Surat, Tambo, Taroom, Tewantin, Thargomindah, Thornborough, Thursday Island, Tiaro, Toowoomba, Townsville, Walkerston, Warwick, Watsonville, Winton, Yeppoon and Yeulba.
