Vehicles of Paris: Part 4
Sorry but you won't see one of these fiery red emergency trucks if you're walking the streets of Paris. I caught this shot at last fall's open house at Hôtel de Beauvau, the site of the Ministry of the Interior. Vehicles of this type were in service between 1932 and 1954. You can just imagine the crew of six racing to a fire with the driver sounding the klaxon.
