Townsville Scrapbooks Archive

This collection consists of three sets of scrapbooks with newspaper cuttings. Throughout these volumes some photographs and small articles on local persons, places, buildings, industries, community events, etc. in or around Townsville have had descriptions added.

The first set contains cuttings from the 'Looking Back' section of the Townsville Bulletin set out in sequential order of publication. The second set of scrapbooks is two volumes with cuttings from the Townsville Bulletin dated throughout and often accompanied by annotations. (This second set may have been compiled by A F Murgatroyd, according to the index at the end of the first volume.) The third set consists of one scrapbook containing original newspaper cuttings from pre-1914. This scrapbook includes descriptions of Townsville, Rockhampton, Charters Towers, and places interstate.
