Lost Brisbane and surrounding areas 1860 to 1960 is a joint publication of The Royal Historical Society of Queensland and QBD The Bookshop. It is a spectacular collection of more than 500 photographs from the Society’s Photographic Collection accompanied by detailed captions to tell the story of each photo.
The book is not only about buildings and places that no longer exist. It highlights the changes in landscapes, streetscapes, work places, transport, and recreational pursuits. The camera unleashed a great opportunity to record the life of the city and panoramas from key vantage points show how the landscape has changed.
Lost Brisbane was compiled over many thousands of hours by the volunteers on the RHSQ Publications Team – Kay Cohen, Val Donovan, Ruth Kerr, Margaret Kowald, Lyndsay Smith and Jean Stewart.
Lost Brisbane is available for purchase from the Commissariat Store for $35.00 per copy.
