Thank you to Ian
Scott, Hazelmere, Buckinghamshire, England, for sending this photo to me.
"Here is a photo of an AEC Southall
fire engine on Hawes Pier, Queensferry. The appliance is from Lauriston
Fire Station and was here on a publicity shoot for AEC.
AEC built the chassis, engine, etc. for
the Merryweather fire appliance in the 1950s and 1960s."

The Forth Bridges
This photo was taken in the early-1960s.
The Forth Bridge, which opened in 1890, is in the background.
In 1964, the Forth Road Bridge opened a short distance further upstream and
the ferries stopped operating across the Forth from Hawes Pier.
