This old fire truck came out of retirement for an appearance at last weekend's 'Peach Days' to help raise funds for the fire fighters. Beats senior PT work as a Wal-Mart greeter! We always put dollars in the old fire fighter's boot they use for the collection… just in case we ever have to call them and they recognize us when they arrive. The middle of a burning building is neither the time nor the place to discuss one's recent record of charitable giving.

From Our 2002 Archive: More Timber & Plaster - Tuesday 3 September 2002
Alresford Fulling Mill © David Packman
Yesterday's featured HampshireCAM picture was by one of the two professional photographers who are behind the development of the web site. Today it is the turn of David Packman, the other partner. David's picture is also of a timber and plaster structure, but in a rural setting: the Fulling Mill at Alresford sits astride the River Alre, and is one of a series of David's pictures taken along the river.
[Sadly the 7 April 2002 page containing the River Alre series is no longer available. However, there are two gallery pages, [1] January-June and [2] July-December, full of excellent archived 2002 pictures. For an Australian friend, who likes quaint place names, we have also included a link to HampshireCAM's Wallops page. - Ed.]

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
