 St. Arnaud festival      
On the way between Bendigo (where I had been to the Swap Meet) we passed through St. Arnaud, which happened to have a festival. In that festival was a display of old truck photographs - here are a couple.
In an unused shop, the local historic society people had mounted a terrific display of old photographs of trucks through the district's recent history. Almost the odd one out, this looks to be a Leyland Badger. It's very similar to the Tom Kruse Badger of Back of Beyond fame.
A C60L with canvas doors. C60X converted to water tanker.
Ford F60L, a 1944/5 model mounting a Fowler crane. The "OZ" registration dates from around 1949.
