    25 Gladys Street, Stones Corner.
This photograph is one of the photographs in the Frank and Eunice Corley Collection or as I like to call them, the 1970s version of Google Street View.
For those that don’t know, the Corley Collection is a collection of 61,000 photographs taken in the 1960s and 1970s which have been gifted to the State Library of Queensland in 1995.
Frank and Eunice drove around Queensland from Beenleigh to Bundaberg in their pink Cadillac taking photographs of houses and selling them to their owners as black and white prints for $0.99 or $1.50 for calendars. It is believed that they took over a quarter of a million photographs and the 61,000 (67 boxes) that weren’t sold were the ones donated.
They operated as the Pan American Home Photographic Co., which was a division of F. & E. Corley Interstate Enterprises and Co.
The State Library of Queensland have called for the public to try to help identify the pictures using what they have dubbed, “The Corley Explorer”

Now this house pictured was one in a bunch that had little clues other than some notes leading to the route Frank had driven.
Using old aerial photographs I have managed to break the code and identify a whole line up, though today none of the houses exist.
I can identify that this house and the neighbouring property were removed between 2002 and 2004 for the construction of this unit development.
The property neighbouring to the right was also removed in that period as well as a few to the south for a townhouse development. That complex was broken up around 2010 when the Eastern Busway was constructed through it.
