“What’s in a Name? The stories behind the street names of Gladstone Queensland” was published in December 2009. From the untimely death of the first Mayor and highly esteemed postmaster, Richard Hetherington, who stumbled into the hold of the SS Queensland when delivering the mail at night, to the downfall of William Edward Hilliard, the sub-collector of customs who collected more than his share of the profits and subsequently became a guest of Brisbane HM Gaol on Petrie Terrace, these stories open up windows to the past, and give the reader a unique insight into what Gladstone was like in the early days of settlement from 1854.
