Looking west along Grafton Street past the statue of Thomas Joseph Byrnes erected in 1902. Devine's Building at the corner of the two intersecting streets was erected in 1907. (Description supplied with photograph.) Warwick was the first town on the Darling Downs established in 1849 on the banks of the Condamine River. The rich grazing land around the area supports horse and cattle studs, fine wool and grain. In 1871 the railway from Ipswich came through. Warwick is situated 158km south west of Brisbane on the Cunningham Highway. (Information taken from: M. Barca, Explore Historic Australia, 2002)
