James Maccormick Digital Story and the 25th Anniversary of Expo 88
By JOL Admin | 26 April 2013
Last year, we received the James Maccormick collection made up of correspondence, plans, drawings and reports regarding World Expo 88 (Acc: 28309, Box 16430).
For some wonderful posts about this collection, James Maccormick, and World Expo 88, check out these blog stories:
World Expo 88, which was the first International Exposition held in Australia during the 20th century, had a profound impact on Brisbane. From the greening of our city; to diversifying our cuisine options and introducing outdoor dining; from cultural progress including public art; to growth in tourism activity; the influence of World Expo 88 was far reaching and continues to today.
To help mark the 25th anniversary of Expo 88, we prepared a digital story with James Maccormick MBE, where he reflects on his collection and the stories around how Brisbane won the bid for World Expo 88.

For those of us who remember Expo 88 fondly, I’m sure we would collectively thank James for his vision and work in bringing the world to Brisbane. And together we showed the world too.
