    (contact QldPics about this picture)


    Due to the gold mining boom between 1872 and 1899, Charters Towers operated the only Stock Exchange outside of a capital city. During this period, the population was approximately 27,000, making Charters Towers Queensland's largest city outside of Brisbane. The decline of mining following World War I saw the population shrink and the town become the supply centre of the Dalrymple Shire as well as the educational centre for students from all over North Queensland.
