Trove Tuesday – Fireman photos

I noticed that a few other bloggers were having a ‘photo week’, so I’ll stick to that theme too.

An unexpected find on Pictures Australia, part of Trove, and out of copyright too!

My great grandfather, Lewis Raikes GARRETT (1876 – 1939) who I have written about a number of times before.

Lewis worked for the Metropolitan Fire Brigade for 33 years, from 1906 until his death in 1939. Here is a great photo of him in his younger years as part of a larger compilation photo.

I have added a couple of photos from our family collection too.

  1. It's a lovely clear photo too. What a bonus.

  2. "Jax Trax" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.
