Research reveals is a webinar series showcasing research projects of the 2019 Queensland Memory fellows, residents and award winners. Gain a unique insight into Queensland history and the collections of the John Oxley Library in this series of fascinating online webinars, where you will have the opportunity to be part of an exclusive event as fellows present the research they have undertaken over the previous 12 months.
Join Tricia King, the 2019 Place Making Fellow, as she shares her research and developments from her project, 'Queensland’s Ice Cream History, exploring the original Peters Ice Cream Factory, an iconic site in the West End community'. Tricia's project focuses on a time in which women’s role in the labour market was particularly significant and she explores the contributions female workers made to the products and the culture of the Peters ice cream factory.
Whilst the history of Fred Peters’ rise from backyard ice cream maker to household name is well known, little is known about the Peters factory workers themselves, and even less about the women and migrant women who occupied a great number of roles on the factory floor. Since its opening in 1928 the Peters ice cream factory in West End Brisbane, provided employment to female workers, opening up opportunities for them and others in the diverse community in West End.
The Place Making Fellowship was funded in partnership with Sekisui House Australia and West Village.
