Long Description:
The old red tricycle is mounted and braced on a grey-painted, square metal post. Mounted onto the seat is a Rega Fire Fighting Water Tank, even with the leather shoulder straps still attached. The water tank has a small covered slot cut into the road-side, for the mail to be delivered into, with a deeper covered slot at the back, for ease of getting the mail out. Beneath the water tank is a piece of PVC pipe for 'junk mail', or items that can be rolled up. The tricycle looks to be in good condition that it could rideable if removed from the post.

[Obviously the flaps wouldn't be made into the Rega tank if it was to be used to fight fires, but I only imagine how uncomfortable it be to have 20kg of water loaded in it, with only those leather straps over the shoulders to share the weight around!!]

[Almost equally impressive is the 1/4 scale corrugated farm house next to the tricycle Mailbox!]
