Old time Belize City fire engines, The Old Old Fire Station Building in Belize City, 1970
I believe those were Rolls Royce fire engines. An old beaten up one is still in the present fire station yard in Belize City. The Le France engines are now located in museums in England and Canada.
These were the fire trucks that used to be displayed proudly at the fire station at "bridge foot" on the north side of Belize City.
This was a scene I saw five days per week as I crossed the street to go to work at the Belize Estate & Produce Co. Usually, I would see the firemen sitting outside--one very fine gentleman fireman, Mr. Walter Bennett, I remember.
