During a Saturday morning coffee and circuit of Newtown’s King Street, we found celebrations in progress for the local Fire & Rescue service’s centenary. The streets on each side of the station were filled with fire fighting trucks, old and new. My favourite was this beauty from the 1930s, although I’m not sure what its equivalent in malamute bladders might be.
We’d arrived just in time for the service’s marching band to travel a short distance down Australia Street, in a vain attempt to stop Munson from stealing the limelight. Sorry folks, but you’re competing against a pro.
|While we were there, we met former mal-owner Sue who kindly supplied some of these photos. There must be something about malamute parentage and wearing purple. |
