There were many courts around Bulimba

I have counted around 35 courts in a 1938 aerial photo. The district was a strong supporter of Tennis, Cricket and Sailing during the summer months.

Petrol Tank roll over and fire.

In the dark of the night we had a huge fire and explosion. A petrol tanker rolled on the corner of Lytton Rd and Apollo Road. Fuel washed down the drains and after the event several manhole covers were blown off down near Taylor Street. ( 1. Photo Love Family collection)
