Ploughing George Street towards Roma Street, 1890s: Chamberlain and Wyllie tendered to put down wooden blocking for the length of Queen Street and George Street from Queen to Roma Streets. The contract was too big for them and George Charles Willcocks took over. Two plough teams were used each operating 12 powerful horses. Four drivers were required and three men to hold and guide the plough

Never before seen photographs of 'Lost Brisbane' over past 150 years
