Summary
"The death of a whale on Burleigh beach at the height of the 1926 Christmas and the wholesale souveniring which followed showed what there was to be feared in the public spirit of the age. The odour was such that the Council attempted to dispose of the carcass by dynamite explosions, the only result of which was an action for damages from a Mrs M Smith whose house lost one sheet of roof iron and one piece of 3" x 2" timber. Fortunately the Queensland Museum accepted what remained of the whale."--Information supplied with photograph. [Possibly from Robert Longhurst]
