This collection includes 21 colour digital images of Cribb Island in Brisbane prior to its re-development to make way for an extension to Brisbane's new airport. The photgraphs were taken by John ('Jack') Maxwell Ross who lived in the Brisbane suburb of Nudgee Beach, nearby.

Cribb Island had developed as a beachside holiday destination. After World War One, a more permanent community emerged on Cribb Island. Historian Jack Ford records that it would eventually boast a state school, a convent school, two churches, a post office, a police station, a medical clinic, a kiosk, a cinema and a private bus service. The land was resumed by the Commonwealth Government in 1970 and, over the next decade, the community was dispersed.
