Me thinks you will find that it is a garbage trailer and the steps at the rear were there for the runners to stand on between pick-ups

...on the front of the cab it says...''corporation of Glasgow'' in the curved lettering, and ''....ing department'' underneath

...on the cab door it says ''speed 20 MPH'' underneath some smaller print above....

...on the front of the trailer it says ''cleansing department''.....
