A week ago today the Brisbane River was reaching it's peak as the full impact of the 2022 floods was beginning to to emerge. In that short week so much has happened as friends, neighbours and strangers all pitched in to help out those that had been affected. .

Incredible image here of police guard residences in Woolloongabba during the Bubonic Plague epidemic, 1900.
Police guard residences in Hawthorne Street, Woolloongabba during the Bubonic Plague epidemic of 1900.
This is where the first case of Bubonic Plague occurred in Brisbane. The house on the left of the photo was occupied by James Drevesen, the first patient. Drevesen was a cart driver employed to remove goods from the wharves where dead and plague-infected rats were found.
The disease continued to appear in isolated cases in Brisbane until 1907.
Twenty-five deaths were recorded from fifty-six reported cases of the disease.

Interesting to learn about the Indigenous roots of how the suburb Enoggera came to be!
The Indigenous name for Enoggera/Breakfast Creek was Yow-oggera or Yu-oggera. However the survey office misspelt the name of the creek on early maps, replacing the 'u' with an 'n' resulting in Yn-oggera, pronounced Enoggera, from which the suburb gets its name.
