Campbell & Sons Catalogue of Woodwork, ca 1910
James Campbell & Sons Limited, affectionately known as "Old Everything" was an institution for Queensland builders from the 1870s and well into the second half of the 20th century. With a Head Office on Creek St and multiple sawmills, potteries, brickyards and timber plantations across the state the firm supplied house designs, materials, hardware and fittings for a vast number of homes in Brisbane and the regions.
This catalogue from about 1910 contains a range of pre-cut joinery including moulds, rails, palings, brackets, arches, barge boards, gates, fireplace mantels etc. It also includes several "ready to erect" house designs which pre-date the "readicut" range which launched in 1917.
