The Archive team have another photograph we’d like your help to identify. It was taken by commercial photographic company Illustrations Limited in 1932 and simply has “R.E. Arnold” written on it.
A check of the 1932 Post Office directory for Western Australia shows that R.E. Arnold was a plumber, but what was this used for? It looks like a wooden barrel or tank with metal coils and a plug or small handle at the end.
The photograph is available for viewing on our online catalogue using call no. 101836PD.
