Celebrations in the street in front of the Town Hall, Croydon, ca. 1901
contributed by QldPics, taken in 1901
(contact QldPics about this picture)
Croydon is located in the heart of the Gulf Savannah, in north west Queensland. When first settled in the 1880s Croydon was a large pastoral holding until gold was discovered in 1885. By 1887 the town's population had reached around 7,000 and during its heyday, Croydon was the fourth largest town in the colony of Queensland.
A large crowd is gathered in the main street, possibly to celebrate Federation. Buildings include the Town Hall, Court House and Police Station. The Queensland Mining building is at the bottom of the street.
