dc.description.abstractIn 1894, doctor and social reformer Thomas Pennington Lucas depicted a dire future for Brisbane in his dark morality tale, The curse and its cure. The story portrayed the city as Lucas imagined it would appear by the twenty-first century - ravaged and abandoned by a dissipated populace long prey to the various social evils Lucas campaigned against. Principal amongst these vices was drunkenness, which the novel's narrator, a guide conducting curious visitors around the township's ruins, described as afflicting the citizens of turn-of-the-century Brisbane to a startling and unparalleled degree.1
