Flood cot could be bit of his­tory

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.

If the cot looks fa­mil­iar, phone Monto jour­nal­ist Ge­orge Smith on 4166 1430 or email monto@cnbtimes.com.au.
