Description
Postcard showing a group of firemen, adults, children and two dogs standing in front of what appears to be the aftermath of a fire. Handwriting on back states "First members Tauranga Fire Brigade 1911". However this requires further investigation and may actually be a photograph taken after the 1916 fire on The Strand.
