Local historian Berenice Wright speaks at the Mackay White Gloves Tour presentations

As part of the White Gloves tour of original historical items to Mackay we were fortunate to have well known and respected local historian Berenice Wright speak at the two presentations held at the Mackay City Library.

The Mackay City Library had generously made available for viewing, alongside the rare items from the John Oxley Library, two early photograph albums from its collection.

Mrs Wright was able to speak about these two early items, placing them in the context of Mackay’s history and development, which was of great interest to all present.

Mrs Wright has a long standing interest in and knowledge of Queensland’s history and in particular the history of Mackay and region.  In addition to her work in the Mackay historical community she has provided the John Oxley Library with a wealth of information about its Mackay related material.

Thank you to Berenice for her involvement in these White Gloves Tour presentations.
