Fire Truck World


This large collection of 'fire-fighting' images originated from an adventurous 10 year, 'photographic' bicycle expedition, pedaling across five continents, and numerous South Pacific and Caribbean islands.  The unique historical evolution of fire engines displayed here, in chronological order,  is a full decade devoted to searching for and visiting fire stations and museums around the world.
