A continuation of the 1915 volume, this book is 'The Cartoonist's Who's Who in Queensland'. The aim of its publishers was to issue a book that would be a novel and valued souvenir.

The compilers have picked out 200 of Queensland's noted citizens (different to those in the 1915 edition), obtained portraits, then added in suitable embellishments by the cartoonists in such style as to remind subjects, their friends, and those in the future, of what they were along with their occupations, and their idiosyncrasies. Each page includes biographical details of the noted citizen, giving name, date and where born, parents names, past occupation/s, clubs, recreation and home address.

Occupations of those chosen to be in this volume range from: business director, architect, photographer, secretary, hotel proprietor, grazier, stock auctioneer, journalist, meat exporter, hardware merchant, solicitor, barrister-at-law, merchant, Justice of the Peace, consul for Sweden, judge, newspaper proprietor, mayor and many more.

This is a useful guide for finding about those of note in Queensland in the early 1900s.
