Boys on an 18th century fire engine, Wirksworth

Boys playing on an 18th century fire engine at Wirksworth, Derbyshire. It was believed to be the oldest fire engine in England, dating back to 1721, made by Newsome. Its most recent use had been to facilitate the washing of windows, but the Town Surveyor had offered it to the South Kensington Museum (Victoria and Albert Museum) as it was older than any fire engine held there
