This picture shows a 1950 AEC Regal/Merryweather 100ft Turntable Ladder that was to remain in service with the Somerset Fire Brigade at Weston-Super-Mare until going out of service in 1974.
Although being sold to a window cleaning company and being painted yellow,later it was repainted red and finally went into preservation.
