The 'Queenslanders as we see 'em' books are primarily a "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.
Between both the 1915 and 1916 volumes, the compilers have picked out 380 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 included range from grazier to hardware merchant, dentist to judge, Consul for Sweden to newspaper proprietor, stock auctioneer to barrister-at-law ... there is a wide variety included. This is a useful guide for finding about about those of note in Queensland in the early 20th century.
