Rainfall in Queensland, February 1953

Rainfall in Queensland, February 1953. February 1953 was the wettest in Brisbane since 1934. The map shows, like in 1974 and 2011, much of the State experiencing a wet summer. This map appeared on page one of the Courier Mail with the simple caption: ‘Map shows where rain is falling in Queensland.’ In the weeks following, Brisbane would experience more heavy rain that would fill the Somerset Dam which was nearing completion. From the Courier Mail 10 February 1953
