Description

Having become a nonagenarian, I look back at a Brisbane that grew slowly, leapt ahead in the 1980s due to a successful Commonwealth Games and Expo, and today is a city of note in our world.

My grandfather, George Down, was Mayor of Brisbane 1915-16 and a Councillor til 1924. My family all love Brisbane.
