Glimpses of Sunny Queensland, 1914
By JOL Admin | 27 October 2017
On April 3, 1914, Brisbane's Telegraph newspaper promoted the arrival of the Queensland Government Intelligence and Tourist Bureau's latest pictorial publication.
"Glimpses of Sunny Queensland is a capitally got up picture album, issued by the Queensland Government Intelligence Bureau. It contains 72 pages, the photographs used in the production numbering 86. The pictures represent scenes from all parts of Queensland, and on that account are invaluable for use in advertising the country. The book is in its third edition, and it may run into more."
Along with numerous photographs from across Queensland, each page in Glimpses of Sunny Queensland features a short, one sentence statement or fact such as, "Queensland's railway system, aggregating 4,986 miles, is the longest in Australia" and "In 1912, over 7,000 immigrants settled in Queensland".
