Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3085O/9
Scope and Contents

200 x 150 mm. A view down the wide street, with the Police Court on the left. With numerous passers-by and three crowded motor cars coming along the street towards the camera. The first petrol driven car to be imported into Queensland, a two-cylinder De Dion Bouton, arrived in 1900, and these cars seem to be attracting considerable attention, as novelties, from the pedestrians.
