The information on the back of the photo reads: “District Depot, Bega. Balmain Bros Service Truck towing car. Includes driver and two men attaching tow rope. 1930?s.”
The picture shows a 1927 Buick Standard Six tourer, model 27-25X, being hooked up to Balmain Bros NRMA tow truck, which looks to be a late veteran or early vintage Cadillac converted for towing. Balmain Bros of Bega, long time GM dealers, were, during this period, the NSW far South Coast Buick distributors.
