Today in history: Thief detained, two weddings

ON THIS day (December 2) in Gladstone history: 


1907:

On Thursday last, a man was arrested in Miriam Vale by Constable Cahalain on suspicion of stealing Brown and Coase's safe at Gladstone, and was taken to Gladstone on Friday.

The residence of Mr and Mrs J Lindley, "Mountain View", was the scene of a wedding on Wednesday last. Their eldest daughter, Millicent, was married to Mr Charles Olsen, of Mullet Creek. The ceremony was performed in the dining room by the Rev. Scott of Gladstone, and was a very quiet one, only near relatives being asked. The happy pair left by the Brisbane mail in the afternoon for their new home.
 

1936:

A very pretty wedding was solemnised at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church, Gladstone, when Beatrice Lydia, youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs J Haack, Auckland Street, was married to Francis William, eldest son of Mr and Mrs EJ Quinlan of Gondoon Street. Given away by her father, the bride looked charming in her bridal gown of Kabe crepe, made on classical lines, and finished with satin buttons on the sleeves and yoke. Miss Elsie Green, niece of the bride, was bridesmaid and wore a frock of pale pink. Mr James Brodie carried out the duties of best man.
