'Haunts of the street bully' : social reform and the Queensland children's playground movement
Frawley, Jodi (2000) 'Haunts of the street bully' : social reform and the Queensland children's playground movement. History of Education Review, 29(1), pp. 32-47.
This article is about the Queensland children's playground movement and its development in Brisbane. It pays particular attention to three Brisbane playgrounds: Neal Macrossan Playground (formerly Paddington Playground); Bedford Playground (formerly Spring Hill Playground); and the Valley Playground, which has since been replaced by a building. The paper pays especial attention to the work of the local children's playground protagonist Mary Josephine Bedford, which will be seen within the context of the international movement.
