Formatted Abstract/Summary Between 16 January 1930 and 22 December 1932, a series of articles entitled Brisbane's Historic Homes appeared in the weekly Queenslander written by FE Lord. During this three-year series, 156 articles covered 180 residences, each entry buttressed with two or three photographs. Not only were exterfors and interiors of the houses described, but also their location, their various owners or tenants and their family connections. These chatty columns were penned by Florence Lord who, through her own personal associations, knew many of the owners and occupants. Over the years many researchers seeking information on Brisbane's older dwelling places have found these columns a welcome oasis on their journeys through Queensland history covering all three essential elements, landscape, place and society at a point halfway between the colony's ongin and the present Q150 commemorations.
