Lindsay’s Album

The following photographs were taken by a Mr Hay, of Brisbane, at Easter 1928. He visited Mt Glorious, apparently as the guest of Thomas Lindsay, and assembled the photos he took into an album which he gave to Thomas Lindsay. Lindsay later gave the album to Alice Patrick and it is now part of the Patrick Family collection. The photographs were provided by Mrs Liane  Dobson, whose husband is the grandson of Dorothy Dobson (nee Patrick).

The identification of the waterfalls as being on the former Clover Lea property is by Peter Gibbons, whose father established the Clover Lea farm and who later ran the farm himself. Clover Lea farmhouse has been converted into the present (2010) Mt Glorious Restaurant, on the sharp bend turning into Mt Glorious village. The farm formerly extended down beside Lindsay road.)

The blocklines are exactly what the photographer wrote on the photographs.
