The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch
Fire Engine Photos
Rivers 11 Canberra Australia
This is the A.C.T. Bush Fire Council's Isuzu heavy tanker which is stationed at the Rivers Volunteer Bushfire Brigade depot south west of the A.C.T. The depot was destroyed in the 2003 firestorm along with 14 of the firefighter's cars which were parked there. This photo was taken at the 1997 Canberra festival.
