About the event
Diana Hacker has lived in Lade Street, Gaythorne for over 60 years. She was obviously the person to write the history of the area originally proclaimed the Parish of Enoggera which now encompasses the suburbs of Enoggera, Gaythorne, Mitchelton, Keperra and Alderley.
In her book, Miss Lade Not Lost, Diana has traced the history from initial settlement in 1845 to the current changes in the area. Diana will talk about the pioneer and early families, the development of communities and the various heritage sites. A special feature of the book is the oral histories of various people who have lived in Lade and other streets. Diana says that ‘it is full of recollections and records of an era lost'.
While the book was officially launched in July 2022, this is an opportunity for members and others interested in local history to appreciate the research which will preserve the stories and memories of this area now part of Greater Brisbane.
Diana is a Life Member of the Queensland Women’s Historical Association, having filled the roles of President, committee member, and long-term archivist in over fifty years of membership. Her previous books include, among others, Booroodabin, Lilies in the Field and three volumes of The Matildas: Short Biographies of Queensland Women Past and Present.
