TROVE TUESDAY 16TH AUGUST, 2016








One of my favourite publications to wander through on 

TROVE
is 
The Queensland Figaro

later known as

The Queensland Figaro and Punch

Such a contrast to today's publications, far more 'chatty' and light hearted. I have often found social jottings about my husband's Great Aunts in particular within the pages. Even some of the ads are incredible.

Here is a general selection from an August publication just over 100 years ago. As always, click to enlarge.
