Book Description Boolarong Publications for Gladstone City Council, Gladstone, Queensland, 1988. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. "After modest beginnings, Gladstone in the late twentieth century became one of Queensland's fastest-growing towns, drawing its strength from coal mining and other industries, and a flourishing export trade, especially to Japan and China. Located 430 km from Brisbane, it was named in 1853 after the English Chancellor of the Exchequer and future prime minister, William Ewart Gladstone (1809-98). Ninety kilometres south of Rockhampton, Gladstone is a coastal city. Gladstone was originally known as Port Curtis, which was named by Matthew Flinders in 1802 after Sir Roger Curtis who had been Commandant at the Cape of Good Hope when he had called there for victuals and resupply. Port Curtis enjoyed a brief three months of temporary settlement as the administrative centre of the colony of North Australia (1847). George Barney (Barney's Point, Gladstone) commanded the settlement but a change of government in England led to its disbandment. Within a few years pastoral occupation of the hinterland brought about pressure for the port to be a livestock shipping outlet. In 1853 the town of Gladstone was surveyed and the first sale of town and suburban allotments took place the following year. Gladstone served well as a harbour, but the absence of plentiful water and agricultural land hindered its development. A gold rush at nearby Canoona (1858) then overshadowed Gladstone for a period. Although declared a municipality in 1863, Gladstone's growth was slow: a customs house was constructed in 1860, the first school in 1864, a Presbyterian church in 1869 and Catholic and Church of England churches in 1874." (Queensland Places) x, 464 pages including index, illustrated. Includes as an insert a commemorative cover envelope celebrating Captain Cook Bicentenary, stamped Gladstone 20 May 1970. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 016747
