Mr Monkey found a couple of things from the home front of World War Two. The little truck is a Dennis fire tender, which belonged to the Ferranti factory at Hollinwood. The grey thing is a Consol shelter. Apparently firewatchers were supposed to shelter in these during air raids, because they couldn't watch for fires if they went into proper underground air raid shelters.
