Collection of Queensland glass lantern slides now digitised

Have you taken the time to view the digitised set of seventy-six glass magic lantern slides displayed on State Library of Queensland's catalogue? The hand coloured slides, dating from ca.1910, take the viewer on a tour of various locations and towns across Queensland including Brisbane, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Yeppoon, Alton Downs, Adavale, Clermont, Capella, Gracemere and Mount Tibrogargan. Some are hard to identify. State Library would be grateful if our blog audiences can help identify their location.
