History of the Ekka by Sandra Watkins. It all began back in August 1876, what would go on to become Brisbane's most iconic festival to celebrate City and country life - the Ekka.
This 23 page full colour booklet is a must have collectors and ekka lovers, it covers the vast and rich history and its humble beginnings. In 1919 Spanish flu broke out and to suppress the spread the ekka was cancelled that year. 1942 during the war the ekka grounds were used to set up camp while waiting to be deployed. This book is an excellent teachers aid for history about Brisbane.
