Sunday Story | The Bellevue Hotel The Bellevue Hotel was built in 1886 on the corner of Alice and George Streets in Brisbane. Regarded as Brisbane's premier Hotel, the three story building featured two levels of decorative cast iron verandahs and welcomed celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn, Nat 'King' Cole & Louis Armstrong. In 1967 the Government purchased the hotel to make way for a modern government building, and despite the public outcry of the Brisbane community, The Bellevue Hotel was demolished in the middle of the night on April 20, 1979. This eventually led to legislation being introduced to protect Queensland heritage buildings. This week's Sunday Story is inspired by our first artist in residence for 2019, Dr Janet Lee. Explore her new written narratives responding to the artworks and objects in our exhibition, Micro Histories and the places of Brisbane: www.museumofbrisbane.com.au/mob-feed/ Courtesy of QLD Places #MoBSundayStories #museum #brisbane #brisbanehistory #museumofbrisbane

Sunday Stories | Brisbane Pineapples Did you know that in 1844, pineapples grew in a garden just off Queen Street? Slate’s Pineapple Garden, a small productive garden produced the fruits right in the centre of our current CBD! Pineapples were grown right around the future Brisbane CBD up until the 1900s, when land was rapidly being converted into residential zones. Throughout the 1900s, plantations continued to thrive in the outer suburbs on the larger stretches of land. Pictured here is a plantation in Redland Bay from 1934 featured in the Courier Mail. This week's Sunday Story is inspired by our first artist in residence for 2019, Dr Janet Lee.

Sunday Stories | Colvins Fashion, Brisbane During the late 19th to the mid 20th century, Brisbane had a small fashion manufacturing industry. This 1938 Spring and Summer fashion catalogue was produced by clothing manufacturer Colvins. Early in 1938, Colvins expanded from wholesale manufacturing of clothing to selling directly to the public. The company opened showrooms in Brisbane’s CBD at Heindorff House in Queen Street and offered a mail-order service through their catalogues. Colvins promoted their clothing as sold at wholesale prices with their slogan – “Two frocks for the price of one”! Courtesy of the Fashion Archives and SLQ. Image: Colvins fashion catalogue, 1938.
