Oxford peat fires
1934 Art worked
Oxford is the town where my grandmother grew up.
My great-grandfather was Arthur, “Art”.
And he was NOT a fireman.
It’s interesting to think about what happened in Oxford in 1934. The peat fires must have been so big that everyone was helping—including my great Grandfather. And so big that my great-grandmother took a picture of the fire truck her husband worked with.
I also know Great Grandma was madly in love with Great Grandpa. So, she may have taken this picture to commemorate the day her hubby saved the day!
And seriously, can you imagine fighting a fire with that thing?! You would have to be brave!
If you have a retro black and white picture please post it on your blog and leave a link in the comments! We’d love to see it!
