Flood cot could be bit of history
THE floods brought much devastation and residents are still picking up the pieces.
But Brisbane traveller Peter Kruger stopped at the Burnett River at Ceratodus recently and discovered a very old-looking miniature wooden baby’s cot.
“Iwent for awalk around and saw this little cot sitting on some of the debris,” Mr Kruger said.
“It was obviously washed away from its home by the floods.
“Iwas going to take it back to my grand-daughter but then I thought someone might see it in the local paper.
“History should stay in its place, so I’d like to know who owns it.
“And if no one claims it, then it should go to a local historical society.”
The 67-year-old left Brisbane with his wife nearly two months ago, stopping at places they had always just driven through on the way to somewhere else.
