October 22 Champagne splashin' around in Talbot

1861 
Sir William and Lady Don smashed a bottle of champagne over the Talbot fire engine and christened it The Lady Don; the horse drawn fire cart remained the main fire fighting appliance for 50 years.
Now on display at Fire Services Museum of Victoria.
