History and use
Made in 1990, this aluminium Foster’s Beer can was produced to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Brisbane’s Story Bridge, which links Kangaroo Point with Fortitude Valley. Incorporating an image of John Douglas Story in front of the iconic bridge named in his honour, these cans were available only in a limited run. J.D. Story was a prominent Queensland public servant, holding the position of Public Service Commissioner from 1920 up until 1939. He was also involved in the establishment of the University of Queensland and represented Government on the University senate.
