Unlikely source for Queensland Rural Towns History
In genealogy always look beyond the obvious and it will get you far. I stumbled across this website, ParanormalPARATEK. They research paranormal activity (which is interesting work in itself), but did you realise they also research the property they are investigating? They are putting together a 6 part series called "Queensland - Our history through time". Seriously, if your research centres around rural country towns these timelines are a fascinating pictorial history..
Gympie, Goomeri, Maryborough, Childers
Part 1 covers - Allora, Dalby, Harrisville, Stanthorpe and Warwick
I struggled identifying some of the images for Maryborough, and there are some pics of the great 1893 flood, I still can't get over the height the water reached!
