Paintings dated 1904 found in Pialba home by new owner
ARTWORKS created by a member of the Fraser Coast's prominent Fairlie family have been found in the Pialba house the family lived in.
Andrew Vieglais, the home's current owner, discovered the drawings and paintings after he bought the house.
He said many of the artworks, which are dated 1904 and signed by F. Fairlie, document the Hervey Bay shoreline as it would have looked 100 years ago.
The Fairlies were well-known and owned a joinery in Maryborough.
