Firehouse and truck (1883)

Firehouse and truck (1883)

This was in some small town outside of Pannonhalma. It was a working firehouse, but I doubt they use this firetruck any more.

These buildings are all over the country, in smaller towns and villages, as not all of them have proper fire stations.They're used by local voluntary firefighters, to store their equipment. They extinguish minor fires, or prepare equipment until the fire brigade arrives from the district fire station...Obviously the truck is not in service anymore....it's just a monument of the past...

This is very different. No fancy ornaments on the building. I am surprised that it is still a working firehouse; how can it fit much of a firetruck?
