PMG as on the number plate, denotes Postmaster General's Department, which was the Government organisation running all postal and telephone communication in Australia. Here is a linesman's T.



Notice the Shell wooden box on the running board. That would contain two four-gallon tins of petrol, so one has to guess that this vehicle is for rural activities.

Would the white tarp over the black roof be used to help deflect the suns heat?

Another picture depicting how the Model T was the pack mule for the worker.

"London, Liverpool, and Globe" ..... Not sure about "Globe", but the sun never
shines brightly enough in the other two to be worrying about a shade tarp !

Kinda on par with selling electric blankets in the Sahara.

Burger, the two smaller words under those named cities would be Insurance Co. Ltd. Many of the UK companies were active in other British Empire countries.

Allan from down under.

I've seen plenty of sun in Oz. Britain, ... kinda known for being a "sunshine-free zone".

It's a North Atlantic thing. :-)
