Town's first fire engine
Posted By: Bruce Clark, 09-20-2015, 06:00 PM

An old copper mining town of Burra in Sth. Australia has kept its early fire engines in a museum. This T Model was the first in town. Lighting was a real problems with just its front bathed in bright sunlight with the rest in deep shadow. Nothing to do except take a photo as is.

Their second and third trucks were hidden in the gloom along with the mechanic servicing them.
