New Ambulance Station - Penrith's Handsome Building

A long report on the official opening of Penrith's new ambulance station and the handing over of a new ambulance waggon. The article includes a photograph of the new building. The new station was built by Mr E T Ohlsson of Ryde, the architects were T W Hidghson & Son. The Chairman of the local ambulance committee, Ald J Jenkins, said that the building was the result of unity between Nepean-Hawkesbury District Ambulance and the Central District Ambulance Committees. The Mayor Ald D Fitch gave credit to the pioneer workers, including Mr J J Price and his wife, who did the lion's share of starting the ambulance. The foundation stone, a plaque for the official opening, and a memorial tablet to Fred Jones, donor of the land, were unveiled as part of the ceremony. The building in High Street west was officially opened by the Minister for Health, Mr H P Fitzsimons. Credit was given to all the local organisations who worked towards this building.
