July Meeting: Discovering Lost Brisbane

Saturday, 23 July 2022 —— Enjoy the talk here.

IF a picture is worth a thousand words, then John McDonnell’s Lost Brisbane Facebook Community site, which is chockful of images of yore, is worth its weight in gold.

John can often be heard on Radio ABC 612, and he is to be guest speaker at the July meeting of the New Farm & Districts Historical Society.

 “I created Lost Brisbane in 2011 as a tribute to my father and grandfather, who told me so many stories about their childhoods in Brisbane,” said John. “After being overseas for 16 years, I returned to Brisbane in 2004 to find a city I could hardly recognise, so began my fascination with what life must have been like. The Lost Brisbane site is the result…”

Come and enjoy John’s address to be held at the Uniting Church Centre, 52 Merthyr Rd, New Farm, on Saturday, 23 July at 2.30pm. Afternoon tea is an absolute highlight. $10 (members $5). All welcome. —— Enjoy the talk here.
