george shaw & sons – history

Our Shaw family history goes back to migration from Ireland to Brisbane in the late 1800’s. There are almost no photos of upper Albert Street, Brisbane in circulation or archives that we are aware of, making these images unique. Original photos now with Brisbane State Library archives, South Bank, as at June 2022.

The mounted deer neck is of course sad to see. I don’t know what happened to it. In those days there was hunting as a sport, deer and kangaroo skins as a norm for some people. I never liked these “trophies” or the world of hunting, fishing and firearms from the Shaw’s history.
