Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LOCAL LIVING -

A horse drawn ve­hi­cle with six fire­men in fancy dress posed out­side the War­ragul Fire Sta­tion in Smith Street c.1908.

This was an en­try in the Car­ni­val Day Pro­ces­sion. The fire­men won sec­ond prize.

The War­ragul Fire Sta­tion stood where In­ter­sport Ni­chos is lo­cated to­day.

The State Sav­ings Bank, to­day the site of Ad­van­tage Phar­macy, can be seen at the rear in Vic­to­ria Street. To the left of the sta­tion is Ashcroft’s Hay and Corn Mer­chants.

Pho­to­graph and in­for­ma­tion cour­tesy of the War­ragul and District His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety.

If you have any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about this pho­to­graph, please con­tact The Gazette on 5623 5666 or ed­i­to­rial@war­ragul gazette.com.au.
