Steam roller and lorry

Taken 1/3/1964 at Echuca, Victoria.

As Echuca is a Heritage Site on the Murray River there is a reasonable chance that both these might have been preserved.

I have a suspicion that both of these are now part of Museum Victoria's Collection at Science Works in Spotswood.

This Super Sentinel is number 5227. It was owned at the time the picture was taken by Stan Hazleman of Echuca. It is now in private ownership.
