A slice of Robertson history

Scan 152410005

A photo recently surfaced which shows a little slice of both Robertson and Brigade history. The photo shows a car fire on the main street of Robertson outside what was the ESSO service station near the site of the current service station. We believe that in this particular incident noone was hurt.

Many locals can be seen in the photo, but one notable mention is Jim Wilson Snr, seen standing on the back of the water tender. Jim is a former long term Captain of our Brigade and a life-member. If you recognise others, or can accurately date the picture (we think early 60’s), please get in touch at robertsonrfb@icloud.com
