Oh now those were the days when petrol cost a few 'bob (shillings)' per gallon and you were filled up by a person at the garage. You were always greeted with 'Good Morning/Afternoon Sir, shall I fill her up?' Often you might ask for a 'shot of RedX' to clean the engine. The AA/RAC patrol man always saluted you (if you were a member) when he rode by on his motorbike and side car full of tools. Oil came in glass bottles by the pint and life went on at a slower pace than now, remember those days do you? Enjoy and I look forward to ant comments and votes. Have a great day - David

Thanks everyone for your comments, couldn't resist it when I drove past this little gem. The building is now part of a small hotel but I'm pleased they kept the pumps for people to remember the old days. David
