Vintage Chevrolet fire engine

This 1936 Chevrolet fire engine was still in use in the neighbouring village of Allerum
in the early 1970s. The driver in the first picture, a now retired firefighter,
 was one of the last who drove the fire engine while it was still in active duty. 

Long distance swimmers in Hittarp

These two long distance swimmers crossed the Öresund last Sunday morning. 

The shortest distance from the Danish side to Hittarp on the Swedish side is about 4.5 km, but because of the wind and currents the swimmers actually covered about 9 km.
