I can pick out out 3 Fire Trucks, and possibly the windshield of a 4th, beyond the Ladder Truck.
Would love to see more shots, and details.
Regards,

The vehicle to the left of picture is a 1920's Dennis No2 pump with Braidwood body and is beleaved to be owned by the Board of Commissioners of New South Wales.In front of this, with only back half showing is a 1950's Bedford J1, again with Braidwood body, this had a 350gpm(or)450gpm pump.The turntable Ladder that can be just seen I beleave is from the NSW Museum.It is a 1942 Mack/Magirus 100 TL, and was in use with the New South Wales Fire Brigades until 1972.

Its a pity in this brilliant line-up of old NSWFB appliances it doesn't include what is beleaved to be the only Leyland TD7/Merryweather 100ft
Turntable Ladder in preservation(IN MUSEUM)now in Australia.The only other preserved Leyland TD7/Merryweather TL outside of the UK is beleaved to be the one at the M.O.T.A.T Museum in New Zealand.
Has anyone got a picture of the NSW Fire Brigades one in the Museum?.
