Humberside Shelvoke & Drewry/Angloco Water Tender

Operating from Hull Central in June 1983 this appliance is seen on its return to station reversing back into the appliance room. I believe its call sign was Alpha 1:3.

This would probably have been one of the appliances that featured in a TV documentary about Humberside Fire Brigade that aired in the mid 80's
The producer was Paul Berriff who also made the series "Streets of Fire" a documentary about the Baltimore Fire Department.
