This photograph shows Lower Flinders Street, Townsville ca. 1873.

Continuing with this theme of presenting images which are believed to be amongst the earliest photographs of Queensland places we now present this image.

The identity of this city will be given in the next blog post on the earliest photographs of Queensland places.
