The Preface of this book starts off with '... this little work might well be called 'The Cartoonist's Who's Who in Queensland'. The aim of its publishers was to issue a book that would be a novel and valued souvenir.
The compilers have picked out 180 of Queensland's noted citizens, obtained portraits, then added in suitable embellishments by the cartoonists in such style as to remind subjects, their friends, and those in the future, of what they were along with their occupations, and their idiosyncrasies. Each page include biographical details of the noted citizen, and includes name, date and where born, parents names, past occupation/s, clubs, recreation and home address.
Occupations of those chosen to be in this volume range from: business directors, architect, photographer, secretary, carrier, hotel proprietor, grazier, solicitor, barrister-at-law, conveyancer, merchant, dentist, Justice of the Peace, newspaper proprietor, mayor and many more.
This is a useful guide for finding about about those of note in Queensland in the early 20th century.
