Toowong History Group

David Brownsey who has a marvellous collection of early telegraph equipment, telephones and teletypes will bring along a lot of interesting pieces to showcase. 2011 is the 150th Anniversary of the sending of the first telegraph from Queensland (it was sent from the Royal Historical Society Commissariat in Brisbane). David will tell us what happened on that exciting day in 1861.

The meetings of the Toowong History Group are held at the Toowong State Primary School Library room from 7pm. Access is via Kate Street from Sylvan Road. Entry is free and all are welcome to attend.
