ARCHITECTURE. ix, 109 p. : ill. ports. ; 30 cm. #011121

The barracks book is the history of cane barracks between Mossman and Ingham, narrated by the colourful characters who were the essence and energy of barrack culture and folklore. Cane barracks remain the most characteristic and enduring example of Tropical North Queensland architecture. Hundreds of these original structures have been lost to cyclone, flood, fire and time; others miraculously have endured, a handful from the 1890s, to bring an historic insight and hand era nostalgia to this fast moving modern NQ tourist oriented 21st century.
