Queensland in panoramic glory

The ever-changing face of Queensland has been captured in panoramic glory in a photo exhibition currently on display at the Gladstone City Library.

The travelling display of panoramic photographs dating from the early 1960s to 1988 from the State Library of Queensland's collection will be on show until October 2.

User service librarian Lisa Ryan said that the library had 10 original images on display, each measuring at least a metre across.

"There are some really great old ones - the one of Southbank during Expo 88 is really impressive," she said.

Ms Ryan added that young and old alike were enjoying the exhibition.

"We have a lot of people just stand there and look, sort of pore over them."

Sadly, there are no photos of the Gladstone region, which Ms Ryan said was a shame.

The exhibition also includes panoramic photographs from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Ayr, Caloundra and Coolangatta.

A DVD presentation explaining how the collection was put together is also available for visitors to watch.
