    In the bottom left hand corner, there is what seems to me to be the bow of a DUKW amphibious vehicle. 535 of these were sent to Australia as part of the United States Lend Lease program, and entered Australian Army service in 1942. [ ref. www.defence.gov.au/dmo/news/ontarget/nov06/rw.cfm ]

    Thank for the link. That's a DUKW for sure.

    Sam Hood was a monster, astonishing captures from the photographic point of view with exquisite framings, very interesting photo collection.

    I wonder how many people lived at Ingleburn then.
