Publishers Description: This is a collection of more than 500 photographs from the Societys Photographic Collection that traces the development and changes in the city and its environs over a period of 100 years. This book is not only about buildings and places that no longer exist. It highlights the changes in landscapes, streetscapes, work places, transport, and recreational pursuits. Brisbanes hilly terrain made it a challenge for transport systems to develop but gave the residents wonderful views. The camera unleashed a great opportunity to record the life of the city and panoramas from key vantage points show how the landscape has changed. So much of Brisbane has been governed by the river. Always dominant, its meandering path made it difficult to establish a port and wharves close to the centre. Floods have been a reminder of the power of nature and photographs vividly show these forces.
