Old equipment on display at Adelaide City Council
« on: December 09, 2005, 09:13:58 AM »
I was walking past the Adelaide City Council customer service centre last night. This is in the walkway between the Pirie St office behind the town hall and the church.

Last night (8th December) the windows displayed old uniforms, photographs and plans of City Council 'decontamination & civil defence' teams.

The photographs include the flat bed trucks the teams travelled in the back and air shelters within the city square.

Equipment on display includes a helmet and breathing mask with a cloth bag.

I do not know when the display will be changed, but it is definitely worth a look at how far we have come in equipment since the war years.

My personal opinion only.
