Background: The glorious spring weather in Sydney today was a signal for many to leave the busy streets of the city and to head for the leafy coolness of Hyde Park. As always, there were the daily lunch-hour crowds -- some come there to sit beneath the shade for umbrellas; others to sit quietly on the grass and feed the park's permanent visitors -- the pigeons.
The Waratah Spring Festival in Hyde Park continued today, and wood chopping was just one of the events being held as part of the celebrations. It offered entertainment galore for the many who found time to watch. This is Wal Edwards, a champion chopper from Lithgow, who shows his skill with the axe in an exciting contest. Matched against him is another champion -- his brother, Tom. Tom makes the winning chop and draws warm applause from the crowd, but his brother follows close behind.
The standing woodchop, with eventual winner Len Stevens closest to camera. The chips fly, and the crowd holds its breath as the swinging axes bite into the wood. Watch now as Stevens makes the winning cut.
A fashion show by some of Sydney's leading models is another feature of this colourful festival.
The main attraction of the day comes from Sydney's Fire Brigade -- a display of fire fighting equipment beginning with a reconstructed fire pump of the third century, B.C.
No automation here -- just old-fashioned labour, and the results are anything but rewarding.
A hundred years later -- the principle is the same, the mechanics slightly updated, with a see-saw pump action. And again the results leave much to be desired.
The twentieth century makes its entrance with a wail of sirens that wakes everybody -- well, almost everybody from his reveries. Then a display of how these modern machines tackle the problem of height.
Sydney's firemen and their equipment in an impressive display of firefighting methods in Hyde Park -- as the city celebrates the Waratah Spring Festival.
