Theophilus Parsons Pugh (1831-1896), journalist, politician and public servant, was the person behind several newspapers which in 1866 enlarged and became the first 'Pugh's Queensland Almanac' and continued annually until 1927.
More than an Almanac, and more than a directory, this volume was a must-have for everyone of the time. The almanac contains information on everything from events scheduled throughout the year, to gardening advice, a calendar, names and contacts for various government departments, banks, as well as postal rates and information, immigration details, railway stations and fares, details of stations and station owners and much more ...
The Directory is just as useful, if not more, covering not only Brisbane, but also the larger towns of Queensland, together with the services in each (even including various societies ... and their members). They list occupations alphabetically together with the persons name, and address. This publication will help you find out more about the society and people of the time.
