Classification CH classification AUDIO-VISUAL TECHNOLOGY Audio Appliances turntable
Name or Title Turntable
History and Use

This mud encrusted TEAC turntable is associated with Queensland’s ‘Summer of Disasters’; the series of Queensland cyclones and floods which occurred over the summer of 2010-2011 and became one of the most devastating natural disasters in the history of the state. The event impacted over 2.5 million people and saw the evacuation of entire towns, power and water being cut off as well as roads, railway lines, buildings, homes and personal property damaged. It also resulted in the tragic death of 35 people and the declaration of 78% of the state as a disaster zone.

When the flood occurred in Brisbane, this turntable was housed in a shed in the backyard of a house in Chelmer. The shed was inundated by floodwater and when the water line receded days later, the contents of the shed, including the turntable were left covered in a thick blanket of mud. It is the current mud encrusted condition of the turntable which links this object to the event in a way that other flood related objects in the Queensland Museum collection do not. The floods had a devastating impact on people’s lives including their everyday household objects and personal property all throughout the state and the object allows for an evocative interpretation of natural disasters - which is a recurring theme in the history of the state - and the mass destruction and debris they can leave behind.

Classification CH classification MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS String violin
Name or Title Violin Cloth
History and Use

This violin was played in an Austrian orchestra that toured Australia during the mid-1800's, and was later played by A.G. Fleischmann in the Ipswich Concert Society Orchestra in the 1930's. One of the most prominent solo, ensemble and orchestral instruments in Western art music, the violin as it is known today was developed in early 16th century Europe. It was and is widely used in art and folk genres throughout Europe and the Western world. It was also introduced and subsequently modified in parts of Asia and the Americas.

To play, the violin is held under the chin with the scroll pointing laterally outward from the body. The left hand stops the strings to define the pitches while the right hand activates the strings with a bow. The strings may also be plucked or hit with the bow-frame.

Classification CH classification TRANSPORT Roads road sign
Name or Title Street sign "Newland St."
Production Place Brisbane/Queensland/Australia
Production Date 1973-1974
History and Use

This street sign is associated with the 1974 Brisbane flood, a significant event in the history of Queensland. It was originally attached to the kerb of a new street in Fig Tree Pocket which was inundated by the 1974 flood. The street, “Newland St.”, was part of a new residential subdivision at the time, developed by the Brisbane City Council and ran parallel to the river (which is today located west of the Montessori School). The subdivision was in the hands of the Council during the 1974 flood and was therefore unoccupied. It was deemed unsuitable for residential purposes and converted to parkland, with one area at a higher elevation being given over to use by the Brisbane Montessori School some years later.
