Firefighters of yesteryear 

<PHOTO> An open appliance with nine firefighters.
My thanks to the Moffat firefighters for the loan of this picture of their predecessors.
I spoke this week to Jane Boyd of Moffat Museum and Andy Little of the town’s Academy Road who were able to give me the names of the volunteer firefighters in this photograph.
Mrs Boyd believes the picture was taken in the early 1930s at Dumcrieff Lodge. The brass helmets the men are wearing – including her father – well gifted by Captain Gardiner.
The picture shows back L to R: Captain Blythe, Bert Maxwell(?). Middle row: Dave Thompson, Robert Little, Peter Murray. Front: Adam Moffat, Frank Proudfoot (the chimney sweep). The driver is Tom Murray, the passenger is Peter Galligan and John Sanson stands at the front.
Mr Little tells me that Colonel Gardiner’s father donated the fire engine in the picture.
The photograph was taken by Hood of Moffat and Lockerbie, who used to have a studio in Well Road, Moffat, which I believe is now the sight of new bungalows.
