John Scott Collection
« on: March 17, 2018, 11:10:41 PM »
Well it seems I am slowly becoming the guardian of a lot of old Australia photos collections .... and here is another. John Scott and his father Sam both worked for Brambles in Western Australia back in the 70s. He recently gave me these photos to share.

Very sharp photos, a nice bunch of trucks. Bramble was a very interesting highly ramified carrier.

Thanks Charlie,  unfortunately that's all he gave me but I do have other collections...  Might even post a heap of Ray Gilleland's (Kangaroo Kid I think was his name here) that go back to the 50s.

Rene,  To see what Brambles are today is very much like our beloved TNT...  Just a shell of what was once one of the biggest companies in Australia

Yes werkhorse, the both ones alongside the third big forwarder, Mayne Nickless, have lost gradually their luster after having
imposed their rule and dominated outrageously the transport sector in Australia during the second half of the last century.
