This painting depicts a tunnel policing Land Rover. It has “Mersey Tunnel Joint Committee” on the doors and is fitted with a police sign and a blue light on the roof. The lights either side of the police sign are actually green. It was in service around 1955-65, as Land Rovers were introduced in 1955 and in 1965 the colour scheme on them was altered. On the rear you can see a cover that lifted up to access emergency equipment such as fire extinguishers and a skate to help tow vehicles with punctures.
