Funnily enough, one of the men in this photo may be my grandfather Edward Charles Haswell who, in that year, left in one of the vehicles for Springsure to start the Ambulance station in that town. My mother was born there in 1923.
Since the establishment of the City Ambulance Transport Brigade (CATB) on 12 September 1892, the original intent has prevailed through time and that is providing care and support to the sick and injured in the Queensland community. By 1902 Queensland had transitioned from a colony to a state and the ambulance brigade had spread to a number of Queensland communities to become the Queensland Ambulance Transport Brigade (QATB). Each local center was administered by a QATB committee in conjunction with the State Council. On 1 July 1991, the QATB was transformed into a state-administered service to become the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) as we know it today. Source: www.ambulance.qld.gov.au/history.html
