Horse lost as bridge gives way

ON FEBRUARY 21, 1928, the Condamine River at Killarney was in flood.

The story to go with this photo, as supplied by Vic Brunton and Alisa Donovan, revealed that a horse was being ridden across the Willow St Bridge when the bridge gave way.

Father and son made a lucky escape, but the horse was lost to the floodwaters through the gaping hole pictured.

The shops in the background include a joinery works, doctors' surgery, saddlery, butcher's shop, general store and a cinema.

If you have any old photos like this one, we'd love to share it with the rest of the region.
