Abstract/Summary View of house at Cribb Island Queensland showing beach and retaining wall shortly after the suburb was resumed for the Brisbane Airport development. "Cribb Island, Brisbane was the first suburb that was entirely destroyed to make way for development, in this case the expansion of Brisbane Airport. Cribb Island was unique in that it was a beachside suburb and holiday destination, a forerunner of the home handyman holiday shacks lying beside moreton Bay. Cribby, as it became known developed into a more permanent settlement after World War One. It would eventually boast a state school and a convent school two churches, a post office, police station, medical clinic, kiosk, cinema and a private bus service." -- [from Jack Ford 'Remembering Cribb Island' by the Nundah & District Historical Society]. John Maxwell (Jack) Ross lived at nearby Nudgee Beach.
