Panoramic Queensland

This exhibition was on display in the Philip Bacon Heritage Gallery, level 4, State Library of Queensland between 14 February - 12 July 2009. The following is an excerpt from this exhibition.

Take a wider view of Queensland’s 150 year history in this exhibition of landscapes and townscapes captured in their full panoramic glory.

The John Oxley Library’s collection of panoramic photographs provides a timely view of how the landscape has changed during the past 150 years. See Brisbane as it was in 1862. Marvel at the romance and engineering of the first permanent Victoria Bridge, built in 1874. Chart the cultural development of Brisbane River’s South Bank through a series of panoramas. The exhibition also includes panoramic photographs from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Ayr, Caloundra and Coolangatta.
