Ballantyne's fire, 1947. The fireman at the left is Robert's father (25 years). Two years out of the navy.

Highly commended entry in the. 2014 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt by Robert Brettmeyer.

Judge's comment: A very moving group of images of the Ballantyne's fire. You get a real sense of the deeply distressing nature of the event from the firefighters point of view
