Good Friday in Sebastopol
For nearly 100 years the Victorian country and city fire brigades have raised money for the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. Here is the Sebastopol brigade, CFA volunteers, out collecting on Good Friday.
This is the original station building, with additions, which was moved over the road from its first site sometime in the early twentieth century.
The Sebastopol brigade didn't have horses, so until motorised engines came in, the firemen ran and pulled their equipment along the streets of Sebastopol to put out fires.
