I was at Mapletree Business City recently and saw this Merryweather Pump Escape Fire Engine. One of two purchased in 1946 by the port so said here.
我最近在Mapletree Business City看到了这古老消防车。1946年由港务局买的两辆其一个。
It looks special enough from up here. So I went down to check it out.
🎶Meanwhile, some music for you to enjoy as you read. This piece is part of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, particular the first of the 4 violin concertos, called Spring.
🎶让大家继续读的时候，欣赏一点音乐。这件作品是维瓦尔第的“四季”的一部分 - 4小提琴协奏曲中的第一首，名为“春天”。

First thing I see is the rear end. The nice and shiny parts must need some maintenance regularly.
Here is a view from the front.
Shooting from an angle to catch the full vehicle.
Close up of the old siren.
The steering wheel with the classic speedometer.
Closer look at what is in front of the driver seat.
Check out the ladder. Wooden and still looks quite sturdy.
This is the sign at the side.
Can imagine the firemen standing by the side here...
