Directories and almanacs are a valuable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history.
This Pugh's Almanac and Queensland Directory contains information on events that were scheduled throughout the year, gardening advice, biographies of notable 'men of the time' in Queensland, government and law information, medical practitioners, chemists, ministers of religion, postage and telegraph information together with costs, railway stations and their fares, stations and station owners ... and so much more.
The Directory is most useful, covering not only the city of Brisbane, but also the major towns around Queensland. The services in each (even including various societies ... and their members) are detailed, as are people with their occupations and address.
Directories are an extremely useful tool for establishing when and where a person lived. However this is just a starting point. Look further in the directory to find out more information about the society in which they lived, the occupations they held and the people they knew.
This product provides a great tool for researching Queensland history making information that is difficult to find plainly and easily accessible on one CD.
