This little booklet is packed full of information on Brisbane – the ambulance, art galleries, associations and societies, banks, excursions, cafes, cemeteries, churches, clubs, consuls, halls, libraries, markets, motor buses, museums, newspapers, the observatory, quarries, railways, schools, sports, stock exchange, theatres, trams, university, wharves, wool sales and much more. Great for a glimpse of life in Brisbane in 1928 – a map of the central city area is included.
BRISBANE has not a Millions Club, but it is now accustomed to the use of “million” in relation to its steadily advancing population. The total is substantially over the quarter-million, and another decade, or fifteen years, should see Brisbane’s population over the half-million. With the largest areas of fertile land of any State, Queensland’s capital has at its back the firmest agricultural and pastoral support.
