The view from here: The photographic world of Alfred Elliott 1890-1940
As an amateur photographer, Brisbane-based Alfred Elliott captured our city at the beginning of an exciting era – a time of population growth, advances in technology and significant global events and social change. Coupled with glimpses of his family life, this Museum of Brisbane exhibition explores one man’s fascinating views of a forgotten Brisbane. The historic collection of glass-plate and film negatives was discovered in the early 1980s, after being stored in cigar boxes under a house in inner-city Red Hill for decades. This incredible find provides a rare and intimate look at both Elliott’s life and the evolution of our city. Find more information about the exhibition and related events and curator tours online.
