Picture of / about 'Brisbane' Queensland - Cottage in Brisbane, ca. 18721 - Cottage in Brisbane, ca. 1872 (Contributed by: QldPics)

The early part of William Boag's career was spent in Sydney where he was in partnership with portrait photographer Joseph Charles Milligan. (Images made by Boag are in the collection of the Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society.)

Boag arrived in Queensland in November 1871. He travelled around the south-east, along the foreshore of Moreton Bay and the township of Cleveland. He then moved into the Logan and Albert area where he captured images of local crushing mills and sugar plantations. While at Yatala, he took on a partner, John Henry Mills, and by the end of 1872, both men were in Stanthorpe where they remained for several months, producing views of the booming tin-mining settlement.

In July 1873, after stopping off in Warwick, Boag and Mills extended their operations to Mackay, where they remained until October 1875. During this time, Boag made trips to St Lawrence and Cooktown, however his movements after this are difficult to trace. It is known that by mid 1876 he was at Copperfield and Clermont, and in February 1878, he inserted a notice in the Peak Downs Telegram announcing that he was leaving for the west. Then information ceases abruptly. It is possible that Boag never reached his destination, since his death certificate records that he died in 1878 at an unknown location.

Women and children standing in the doorway of a cottage in Brisbane, perhaps in Mary or Margaret Streets, or in the Spring Hill area. This is an early example of the use of an interesting architectural element, which became popular in the 1880's. The decorative fretwork pediment installed over the doorway would have been manufactured by a professional joiner and was executed, probably at some expense, with a steam-powered fretsaw. The galvanised iron on the verandah awning was also an innovation that would eventually become Queensland's most popular roofing material.

Picture of / about 'Brisbane' Queensland - Brisbane's first School of Arts building on the corner of Queen and Creek Streets, ca. 18724 - Brisbane's first School of Arts building on the corner of Queen and Creek Streets, ca. 1872 (Contributed by: QldPics)

The School of Arts building is arranged for a Masonic ceremony in the early 1870s. This venue was used temporarily by the North Australian Lodge, when a new meeting place had to be found in 1872. The brethren left the Old Masonic Hall and later moved to the Town Hall, which became their new quarters. The North Australian Lodge was the first established in the Colony and derived its name from the hotel in Queen Street where its earliest meetings had taken place. John Petrie, Sir Charles Lilley and Ratcliffe Pring were foundation members of this distinguished group of freemasons.

This boarding house was owned by John Menzies, a former licensed victualler, and was situated between Margaret and Mary streets. It probably had just been erected when William Boag arrived back in town from Cleveland to photograph Brisbane's houses, shops and public buildings.
