Fire engine at bottom of Newland Street

Taken: 1947-1954, Ref: M2303

Fire engine at bottom of Newland Street. It has registration number MPU 223. This registration was given on 16 September 1947 to Essex County Constabulary for an AJS cycle, so it must have been re-used for the fire engine. Info from ERO C/DF 11/46. In the background, end wall of 143 Newland Street (far left), and 149 Newland Street and 151 Newland Street (together, behind fire engine), and sign for the Swan.
