Several really good photos here! Many people's idea of heaven on Earth, an ice cream and beer truck! I noticed the front fenders on it right away (I will let someone else say what I saw).
The "Bay's Delivery service" truck sure looks like a very early TT. It has solid tire rear wheels, non-demountable, front tires, and non-electric based upon side lamps. Actually, that combination was available in the USA well into 1923 at least, but is rather unusual. Most USA TTs after 1920 had at least one of the later options, usually pneumatic rear tires. Also however, I can't tell for sure about the wishbone, but I think it is over the axle.
The J Bugden truck (two first photos) has the same usually early combination of options, however it has a below the axle wishbone. Still fairly early.
Wonderful looks into Australia's (and the world's) past!
Thank you Dane H!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
