The Amazons First Ladies Fire Brigade, Australia

Merilyn Childs

Captain Minnie Webb, first (and only) Captain of the Amazons, First Ladies Fire Brigade, Armidale NSW Australia, demonstrating evacuating a burning building by leaping into the sheet held by citizens, c 1901. Not to be copied without permission.

"What shall we do with our girls" is a personal narrative that tells a little of the journey that emerged as a result of uncovering "The Amazons" and subsequent images. The photographs were generative of other creative works. [http://www.scribd.com/doc/133335562/What-Shall-We-Do-With-Our-Girls]. As a result of the photographs, I collaborated with costumier Gracie Matthews to reproduce the operational and dress uniforms of The Amazons. These were then paraded by contemporary female fire fighters as part of my key note address to the Australasian Women in Fire Fighting Conference, Sydney Australia, June 2006.
