In the 1880s he wrote a report for the Government on the best means of sanitation for Brisbane and became Medical Officer for Health for the city of Brisbane. He was very active in public life, serving on the Legislative Council for 36 years. He was also involved in establishing a university in Queensland. The Taylor's lived in the city but their rural retreat was in Ashgrove. Presenter: Lindy Sugars
