  • Volume 23 Issue 10 - The wreck and rescue of the 'Royal Charlotte' 1825
    • Abstract: Pearn, John
      Shipwrecks are tragic and terrifying events. The saving of life under such circumstances, with recounted first-person accounts of skill, courage and sacrifice, has rightfully received permanent recognition in the annals of history. One of the most dramatic rescues of shipwreck survivors in Australian maritime history followed the wreck on 20 June 1825 of the 'Royal Charlotte' on Frederick Reef, 220 nautical miles (410 km) northeast of Gladstone.

  • Volume 23 Issue 10 - How the Queensland deposit Bank shaped the suburbs in
           the 1880s
    • Abstract: Stanford, Jon
      In the early 1880s Queensland experienced an economic boom based on an inflow of British capital to both the government and private sectors. Government expenditure from the Loan Fund increased at an unprecedented rate. In the decade total expenditure was 15 pounds million including 2 million in 1886, a figure not reached again for twenty-five years. It was estimated that in the same period 12 pounds million was invested in Queensland on private account; over half the government's expenditure on capital works went into railways so that railway mileage increased from 637 to 2,064. This activity required an increase in the workforce which was provided substantially by increased immigration; the Queensland government continued its assisted immigration program on a large scale which saw 103,000 assisted immigrants arrive in Queensland or some two-thirds of all assisted immigrants to 1890. The annual increase in population peaked at a rate of nearly 16%in 1883. Between 1880 and 1884 the total population increased by nearly 50% and in the following five year interval by just short of half that. Brisbane experienced an even more explosive growth in population. It was estimated that the city's population grew from 31,109 in 1881 to 93,657 a decade later.

  • Volume 23 Issue 10 - Memorialising Irish Australians in Brisbane,
    • Abstract: Sullivan, Rodney; Sullivan, Robin
      The Irish have an impressive appetite for commemoration, with the 'power of memory' an enduring presence. Their imprint on Brisbane's cultural landscape exceeds that of any other ethnic group. Such memorialisation was an extension, and adaptation, of cultural memory practices in Ireland, including graveside commemoration. Almost in tandem, the Irish at home and in Queensland used memory to shape identity, encourage solidarity and assert claims in the public sphere. In both cases a new monumentalism took hold in the 1870s. The unveiling of a statue of 1848 Protestant rebel leader, William Smith O'Brien, in Dublin in 1870 heralded a new nationalist memory regime. Underlining the transnationality of diasporic memory, an allied commemorative tradition, adapted to local circumstances, was almost simultaneously inaugurated in Southeast Queensland.

    • Abstract: Shnukal, Anna
      The post-war introduction of Okinawan pearling indents to Torres Strait is a relatively unknown episode in Australian-Japanese labour relations, culture contact and the history of pearlshelling in northern Australia, although it has recently been the subject of two government-funded research projects on the Okinawan presence in Australia.

    • Abstract: Clayton, Mark
      Harry Oakman (1906-2002) was one of Australia's foremost gardening authorities and a pioneer of Australian architectural landscaping. A prolific columnist and author, his vision and writings have greatly influenced the form, number and appearance of our green spaces and gardens - both private and public - especially in Newcastle, Brisbane and Canberra. Oakman directed the Brisbane City Council Parks Department for 16 years (1946-1962) and was later Director of Landscape Architecture with the National Capital Development Commission in the Australian Capital Territory.

  • Volume 23 Issue 9 - Exploration and settlement: conflict in Queensland -
           an overview
    • Abstract: Donovan, Val
      Over the years, governments of all persuasions in Australia have struggled to produce policies for the benefit of the country's Traditional Owners that are acceptable to both the Indigenous and the non-Indigenous population. One of the reasons may be that the citizens at large do not have a grasp of the history that still haunts many Aboriginal people and often causes dissent when events, such as the recent 2018 Commonwealth Games, appear to overshadow this history.1 If the history was well known and acknowledged, then policies might be formed and events held in a way that could be beneficial to all. This paper endeavours to provide a brief overview of how the traditional lands of Aboriginal people were taken from them - one of the main areas of controversy in Australia's history.

  • Volume 23 Issue 9 - The Queensland Railways, the Eggs, the Prime Minister
           and Warwick
    • Abstract: Hallam, Greg
      The centenary of the infamous 'egg throwing' incident at the then Prime Minister of Australia, William (Billy) Morris Hughes, was recognised with a number of events at Warwick in November 2017. These events included commemoration of the establishment of the Commonwealth Police (later renamed Australian Federal Police Force). There was a re-enactment by a local acting group, of the incident on the platform of Warwick railway station. The Southern Downs Steam Railway provided the steam train 'backdrop', displays and exhibitions, and a history panel was organised by descendants of the Brosnan family to recognise the political, conscription and sectarian divisions in Australia a century ago. This paper outlines the context of the Warwick egg throwing incident and the role of Queensland Railways in the Great War.

           national party, 1925-36
    • Abstract: Moore, David
      In 1925 the separate Queensland non-Labor parties set an historic precedent, with the formation of the Country and Progressive National Party (CPNP). After three years in power following after a large 1929 victory, it was defeated and then disbanded after a 1935 humiliating defeat. This article tracks the origin, rise and fall of the CPNP and facilitates a comparison with today's Liberal National Party (LNP).

      Travel northbound over the Breakfast Creek Bridge into Kingsford Smith Drive. To the left, Toorak Hill and Hamilton Hill look down to the Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade and the busy river. In 1823 when John Oxley climbed Toorak Hill and looked out, the hills were heavily wooded. Now, trees have made way for expensive houses and landscaped terraces.

  • Volume 23 Issue 8 - Address for Separation Day 2017
    • Abstract: Saunders, Kay
      First, may I sincerely thank the President for the honour you have bestowed on me today. I am mindful of the significance of this event we are celebrating. I must admit a little fearful; for what can I say that you do not already know' You are all aware of the regal party's progress up the Brisbane River, the landing and the public welcome. With that in mind, I shall not retrace the steps of Sir George Bowen and Contessa Diamantina as they confronted the steamy, vibrant heat of a summer's day. Later Bowen called the colony, as it was soon to become, a 'debatable land' - a strange outpost of the British Empire begun in the terror of the penal system just 35 years before and with the ongoing relentless dispossession on the ever-expanding frontiers.

  • Volume 23 Issue 8 - ANZAC and the 'memory industry': Reflections on recent
    • Abstract: Moses, John A
      There have recently appeared, both in Australia and abroad, a considerable number of publications on 'memory studies', especially relating to the commemoration of fallen soldiers, mainly through the building of war memorials. A great deal of effort has quite recently been expended on this endeavour in Queensland, driven earlier by the Anzac Day Commemoration Committee [ADCC], and more recently by the Canon Garland Memorial Association. As scholars such as the American Professor Jay Winter have illustrated, commemoration, especially after World War I, became very common in all formerly belligerent countries. Everywhere, monuments were being erected, and large cemeteries near the sites of historic battles were constructed and generally maintained with great care. Very soon a Commonwealth War Graves Commission was established to be responsible for the graves of soldiers and airmen killed in combat on foreign soil. Nations honoured their dead heroes and sought to comfort the bereaved relatives; there were, of course variations in the style of monuments from country to country and there were also differences in the sponsorship of the memorialisation. Sometimes the initiative came from prominent individuals, governments, or, as in the case of Queensland, from voluntary associations as well as municipalities. What happened in Queensland was the local variation of a world-wide movement.

  • Volume 23 Issue 8 - Philip John MacMahon: Brisbane Botanic Gardens curator
           1889-1905 and his vision of Brisbane as a 'City of Palms'
    • Abstract: Dowe, John Leslie
      Philip John MacMahon was curator of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Queensland, Australia, 1889-1905, and Director of Forests 1905-11. MacMahon significantly expanded the palm collection at the Botanic Gardens and he encouraged their wide-spread use in both public and domestic situations. He envisaged Brisbane as a 'City of Palms'. This paper provides a brief biography of MacMahon and outlines the development of the palm collection in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens during his curatorship.

  • Volume 23 Issue 7 - Shattered dreams: Recollections of the palmer goldrush
    • Abstract: Grimwade, Gordon; Grimwade, Christine
      First-hand accounts of life on the Palmer Goldfield in its heady and hectic formative years are few and far between. For many years historians and archaeologists working on and writing about the Palmer have had minimal primary material at their fingertips. Letters from miners on the diggings were those gems that one hoped for, but rarely sourced. Apart from the plethora of newspaper reports and archival material, the most significant, published, first person recollections of the later stages of the Palmer rush are those of JH (John Harrison) Binnie, My Life on a Tropic Goldfield, self-published in 1944 and recounted over 60 years after the events. John Binnie details life on the Palmer where his father, Andrew, ran hard rock crushing plants from 1875 until 1882. John, then six-years-old, his mother and siblings had joined their father in 1876.

  • Volume 23 Issue 7 - An epic trek to utopian': 'Reliance' commune,
    • Abstract: Metcalf, Bill; Dawson, Veronica
      In the 1890s, in a wave of utopian, communal experimentation, over 100 rural communes were established across Australia, most with some form of government support. In Queensland, 14 communes were created during this decade, with 12 receiving government financial support. Those 12 were 'Bon Accord, Byrnestown, Excel Pioneer, Industrial, Mizpah, Monmouth, Obertown Model, Nil Desperandum, Protestant Unity, Reliance, Resolute' and 'Woolloongabba Exemplars'. Alice River and 'Kalevan Kansa' were more or less self-reliant. Of these, only the story of 'Reliance', the subject of this paper, remains to be told, and what sets it apart is the epic journey its members took first to reach, then to leave, their land.

  • Volume 23 Issue 7 - Growing an empire of leaves: The Brisbane years of
           bushell and Co., 1883-1910
    • Abstract: Griggs, Peter
      Since 1883, thousands of Australians have consumed Bushells tea, especially the firm's now famous Blue Label blend which first appeared on the market in 1911. Thousands of workers en-route to their jobs in inner Sydney probably viewed or passed the seven-story head office building of Bushells Ltd in Harrington Street, 'The Rocks', if they arrived at Circular Quay by ferry between 1924 and 1974.1 Many Australian women may have seen the colourful eye-catching advertisements for Bushells tea in women's magazines such as Woman or 'The Australian Woman's Mirror'. Other Australians may have seen cinema advertisements or heard radio advertisements for Bushells tea. Yet most of these Australians most likely did not realise that this iconic Australian firm had its origins in Brisbane.

  • Volume 23 Issue 7 - Charles snow 1882-1953: The founder of scouting in
    • Abstract: Pearn, John
      Scouting is an important institution in Australian society. Scouting was conceived in 1904, and established in 1907 by Lieutenant General (later, from 1921, Lord) Robert Baden-Powell to become a uniformed organisation, initially for young males. Within a century, more than 550 million youths had served in the Scout and Guide Movements. In the second decade of the twenty- first century, more than 40 million youths, in 140 nations, are active Scouts. In Queensland, hundreds of thousands of Scouts (since 1986, children and young adults of both sexes) have been enjoined in the programmes of Scouts Australia. Scouting activities encompass the educational domains of self-development, good citizenship and supervised collegiate enjoyment with an emphasis on outdoor adventure.
