Winter holiday

Friday flashback to vintage Brisbane of 1934 and this fabulous poster promoting Brisbane as a winter tourist destination. The poster includes a depiction of the Old Windmill, Brisbane River and a poinsettia - the floral emblem of Brisbane.

Percival Albert Trompf (1902-1964) is the artist responsible for creating this tourism poster and is credited with creating many of the tourism posters at Queensland State Archives. You can view this poster for yourself at the Museum of Brisbane located in Brisbane City Hall.

Hello, my name is Anna. I’m a wife, a mum, a daughter, a sister, a friend, an employee, a runner and a great lover of our amazing city and beautiful state.

I first started taking photos of Brisbane, about 2 years ago, when I was out pounding the pavement early in the morning. I would see images of our amazing city and want to share them with people and so I decided to post them to Instagram. I’ve been taking photos of Brisbane ever since and when I say “taking photos” I mean with an iPhone! I endeavour to keep my photos to their original colour and sometimes I use filters.
