The album is a rich photographic record of Queensland’s agricultural industry and landscape from around 1894-1910. The photographs also cover a range of other themes including early transport, sport, horse racing events, street scenes, buildings, the Great Barrier Reef, flooding, ships, rivers and the control of rabbits. The album also contains a number of early photographs of Aboriginal Missions and camps.
