An enamelled advertisement from the early 20th century in Beamish Museum's town garage.

We are on the point of setting off for our annual week-end in London and will not be uploading again until Tuesday. We still hope to drop in from time to time. I sincerely hope we will not require any towing service, free or otherwise!

I hope your mode of transport is a bit more modern than this.

I love these enamelled treasures and you have captured this one beautifully.

What a wonderful old advert, they have lots like this at the Cotswold Motor Museum in Bourton-on-the-Water which is well worth a visit if you are ever in the Cotswolds
