1923 Hotchkiss fire truck

This photo was taken at the ACT museum of fire it is an old decommisied fire station and is open on weekends it is really worth visiting (If you get to Australia). The truck is a 1923 Hotchkiss and I think it was the first petrol engines fire truck in our nations capital. In the background you can see the old Brass Helmets used during the old days.
