Westbrook Siding

Westbrook Siding post office, 10 km south west of Toowoomba, opened on 1 April 1883 as Westbrook. It was renamed Westbrook Siding in 1897 before reverting back to Westbrook in 1910. 

The registered handstamp should read Westbrook, but the only known example for this post office is Westbrook Siding, suggesting that a new registered handstamp was made when the post office name changed in 1897
