Morris Mini Cooper

Seen in Cooroy, Queensland. The Mini is a small economy car produced by the English-based British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered an icon of 1960s British popular culture... This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis. It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the Victoria Park/Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy (Innocenti), Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela, and Yugoslavia. Wikipedia Alec Issigonis (1906 – 1988, knighted in 1969) had been born in Smyrna in present day Turkey, the son of a Bavarian mother and a Greek father who became a nationalized Briton. After the war between Greece and Turkey where Greece lost her possessions in Asia Minor, young Alec and his by then widowed mother arrived in London in 1922. Here he pursued studies of engineering and eventually began his career in the motor industry. In 1936, he joined Morris Motors at Cowley. ozcooper.com.au/A_Mini_History.htm

Lady Mary Lennox

Mary Street, Gympie, Queensland. One of these days, I will be there when the light is in the right place :-) A ¾ to life-sized bronze statue in Mary Street, Gympie, dipping her toe into the water — in recognition of the impact floods have had on Gympie. The Mary River has long served as a vital artery for the Gympie region and its industries. Known as Mooraboocoola, Moocooboola and Monoboola by the indigenous people of the region, the river was named Wide Bay River by early European explorers Andrew Petrie and Henry Stuart Russell on 10 May 1842. The Mary River was officially renamed on 7 September 1847 after Lady Mary Lennox Fitzroy, months before she was tragically killed in a carriage accident. Lady Mary Lennox was born 15 August 1790, the eldest daughter of Charles, the fourth Duke of Richmond and Charlotte, the daughter of the fourth Duke of Gordon. Lady Mary married Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy on 11 March 1820, and the couple came to Australia in 1846 when Charles became Governor of New South Wales (which included the Wide bay region then, prior to the formation of Queensland as a state). The town centre has been flooded on a number of occasions. The largest flood on record was in February 1893, which peaked at 25.45 metres and covered most of Mary Street (named after the river) with the waterline reaching the vicinity of where the Lady Mary Statue stands today. This statue was officially unveiled on 14 February 2017 by the Mayor of Gympie Regional Council, Mick Curran. Artists: Gillie and Marc
