SLQ’s 2012 John Oxley Library Fellow, architect and historian Don Watson has been working on a successor volume to Queensland architects of the nineteenth century (1994, co-authored with Judith McKay). 

Join him as he considers the emergence of specialist consultants – structural, electrical and mechanical engineers and quantity surveyors – who assumed roles formerly undertaken by architects or building contractors. Discover the early history of these disciplines in Queensland and where Don thinks the line should be drawn on the list of who’s who from the era of 1900-1950.
