About

This is Lloyd Rees' earliest extant sketchbook. The book was a gift from Wal Taylor, bookbinder and work-mate at the Queensland Government Printing Office, Brisbane, where Rees worked 1913-15. It has numerous studies of early Brisbane landmarks - churches, bridges and various public buildings.
