Identifying our History through Picture Ipswich

Picture Ipswich is an online database of images operated by the Ipswich Library and Information Service which captures the lifestyle and history of Ipswich. Many of the images in Picture Ipswich have been kindly provided by the community.

This photograph is of the Butter Factory on Jacaranda Street, Booval, taken in the 1930s.  Do you have memories of this business, did a family member work there, or do you have images of businesses that were or still are in Booval?  We are looking for photographs of the factory, businesses in the area or anywhere in Ipswich.

If you have other photographs depicting the past way of life and history of the Ipswich community, please contact the Digital Archivist on 3810 7272 or email

All photographs are scanned and returned to the donor.
