Telephone directories for Qld/Gold Coast 1953/4
« on: Wednesday 12 August 20 08:18 BST (UK) »
Hi

I'm looking for an address around Main Beach in the years above, know the people I'm looking for aren't in electoral rolls - does anyone know if there are telephone directories available for those years that might be available, preferably online?

Many thanks
Meegan

Hi Meegan,

You could try the Queensland Telephone Directory 1931-1959 on FindMyPast.

SLQ have Queensland Post Office Directories, 1868-1949, but they may not be recent enough for you.

Cheers, Justin

Thanks Justin. I see they have a free 14 day trial so might try that. Emailed SLQ and waiting to hear back
Thanks for the direction

Cheers

No worries Meegan.  I'm in Brisbane and I have a membership with SLQ, so feel free to let me know if there's anything I can help with.

Thanks Justin - I, too, have SLQ membership and am about 20mins out of Ipswich so might be time I took a train ride into the Big Smoke and had a look for myself, if they have the Directories. It's a big thing to go into the city these days!

Many thanks
Meegan
