Fire Station 1955
An efficiency shield awarded to the station, partly seen at the bottom of the image and station personnel.
Thought I recognised my Dad on this photo, he is back left, Donald Walker. This is the year I was born and I always
knew him to be part of the fire brigade. I think he was part-time but not sure. Remember going into the station with him on
Sunday mornings where my brother and I were treated to sweets and, if very lucky, to be lifted up onto one of the engines.
We had a huge bell on the wall of our stairs which rang to call them in to the station when there was a call out.
In front of Dad is Tommy Widdup, I'm sure he used to come and clean our windows. In front of Tommy is Station Officer
Jack Mann and behind him on his left is I think Joe (Albert) Hogg.
