Name of the Place : Brisbane Arcade And Shocking History of Founders’ Family


Brisbane Arcade, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia


Name of the Place (Post#62) : Brisbane Arcade And Shocking History of Founders Family

Photos of the day are all about the name of Brisbane Arcade which built in 1923. The building is now part of Queensland heritage asset. Even I had seen four arcade shopping  centers across Australia, but I can still see uniqueness of the arcade from the other traditional shopping arcade as it reflects the style in Europe arcades during late 18th century. And while checking more information about Brisbane Arcade, I had learned in the process from their official website the shocking story behind the father of the founder of the arcade. These photos are part of Brisbane Open House Event Tour last October 2013.

Brisbane Arcade was established by Dr James Mayne and his sister Mary Emelia Mayne. Their father named Patrick Mayne sets up his family home and butcher shop in Queen Street where the arcade standing today in 1849. And before Patrick died, in 1865, he confessed that he murdered and robbed timber cutter Robert Cox in 1848. This confession shunned the Mayne family and none of his children marries or has children.

The Mayne siblings became great benefactors to the University of Queensland. He gave the university the land for their St Lucia campus. Brisbane Arcade was also established in a Trust and proceeds from the Trust still benefit the University of Queensland Medical School and medical research.
