The modern garage - 100 years ago

By HobbitDave
Wasnt going to upload any more oldies but found this one at the bottom. Restored in iPads Photo Editor on iPad Pro, it was an original very faded retail photo postcard from this Hampstead garage, so they must have been doing pretty well around 1920 or a little earlier!
Nice little bit of London Social History, and I hope interesting to see. Theres an interesting big bike in there too, so they must have serviced all kinds of vehicles. Hope you like.
Many thanks to Isabel (EPZ Chinga) for her award on my previous upload, its really appreciated.
