Photograph in an album that belonged to an Australian serviceman in the 5th Australian Light House during World War I. The album contains 103 small black and white photographs, mainly of Gallipoli in 1915 and some of France and Belgium. They are believed to have been taken by Trooper George Simpson Millar, service no. 160, 'A' Troop, 'C' Squadron, 5th Australian Light Horse Regiment, 2nd Australian Light Horse Brigade, A.I.F. He served in Gallipoli and France (for some time as an officer in the Imperial Army), returning to Australia in 1919.

The photograph is from Sydney. The company that owns the trucks are called J. McMahon & Co. There is no apparent connection between George Simpson Millar and the photograph.
