Formatted Abstract/Summary

Like Brisbane History Group Papers no. 3, the collection is a miscellany with our any common thread. It derives from thirteen of our sessions held in recent years: Archbishop James Duhig (1982) ; Nineteenth century settlement (1983) ; An Ipswish perspective, Early Water Supply, Colonial botany (1984) ; Bethania and Beeleigh Winterfest, Colonial Christmas (1985) ; Southbank heritage days (1985 & 1986) ; Squatters in town and abroad, Promenade at the Princess (1986) ; Pre-separation Brisbane and Toohey Forest (1987). One of the 1983 papers on nineteenth century Brisbane and the 1987 session at Queensland Museum have not been included as they are covered elsewhere (Johnston 1983 ; Mather 1986). Consequently this collection clears the decks for next year’s publications, including the volumes on archives in 1987 and Brisbane in 1988.

Though hardly a cohesive volume, there papers related to the history and development of the Brisbane region. In particular they concern various people, and places, as well as some cultural aspects termed pageantry. None of these subjects has been handled in this way before.

To repeat a BHG cliché, if this collection provides profit and pleasure for people interested in Brisbane’s past, it will have achieved it purpose.
