Affectionately referred to as  truck 'With 36 doors', they are trucks used for transporting human waster from 'toilet' sheds in old Singapore kampongs and old houses in town without proper toilet facilities to the sewerage treatment centres around old Singapore.  Needless to say, the smell from the gusts of winds from such a passing truck is something a 67-year old like me can remember for life.
