Chris - really appreciate all the photos that you are getting out to us, from over the years.

Fellow readers, From Elsewhere; look carefully - not only is the Driver in an Open Cab...he is alone in his own Half-Cab !

Think bottom-half of a double-decker bus....has
to be one of the more unique Aerial[TTL] Ladder designs about...

Regards, from Canada,

Replaced around 1960 by the one and only Leyland Firemaster Magirus turntable ladder with a front-mounted 500 gpm pump. The other, without a pump, went to Darlington County Borough and is in preservation, thanks to Dr. Hutchinson.
