Did you know?

 

In 1865 Ipswich had a means of fighting fires in the form of the Southern and Western Railway Fire Brigade (SWRFB - sometimes known simply as the Railway Fire Brigade).

 

It comprised thirty-five volunteer firemen dressed in what the Brisbane Courier described as a ‘very neat and appropriate’ uniform. They were paid two shillings an hour while on duty at a fire and one shilling an hour while practising.
