Memory Lane - New cars from the back of the garage to the showroom

I WRITE in reply to Kevin Marwood regarding Johnson’s garage in Victoria Road (Memory Lane, May 21).

While serving my time as a motor mechanic I used to visit this garage for spare parts.

Their dealership was with Hillman and Humber, not many big Humbers, also Sunbeam Talbot and Commer trucks.

All new cars within, from the back of the garage to the showroom.

Next door to the garage was the pub on one side and on the other were the Gas Showrooms.

I hope these few words will help the lads. Sorry no photos.
