Image of Dennis Dart fire appliance New Zealand
Thjis is a 1930 Dennis Dart fire appliance that served with the Dunedin Fire Brigade (NZ). We understand that there were only three Dennis Dart appliances made and all of them came to New Zealand. Happily all still exist. This one has been restored over a 30 year period after being recovered from a farm where it was used as a weedsprayer with a large square tank replacing the ladder gallows and hose reel.
