No fuel available here any more, but I spotted this beauty whilst up in Newcastle this week:

According to this:

 

http://www.spenceand...-upon-tyne-1931

 

It originally included rest and washing facilities for chauffeurs awaiting the conclusion of their employers’ business or entertainment in the city centre; a car lift and turntables to transport these large chauffeur-driven cars to an available parking space; washing, servicing and refuelling facilities as well as a new car showroom. 

 

You don't get that at Blue Boar or Clacketts Lane.

It's still open as a multistory car park, I parked up there last year. The best thing about it is that the offices at the front are abandoned and still full of 1950s office equipment.......

My local "servo" as we call them here, soon to be no more

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2018022...

It closed when a new one was built on the outskirts of town as this one was old and on a prime bit of land

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2018022...

The owner lived in it until he died 2 years ago (at 101!)


And gone

This used to be a place you could buy fuel, so I'd like to share it with you here, even though probably it ought to go into an Architecture thread... Manor Road Garage, East Preston...

What a place! I did a bit of digging, and when the place was cleared in the mid 00s, it offered up quite a feast of old tin. I wonder what happened to the contents?

Nope. That's perfectly normal for Wales.

My first house when I moved out from my folks was a shared one with mates and I had the front bedroom (smallest), the view from which was this. When I moved away (2002) was still attended service. Can't vouch for if it's still open I'm afraid, but even then it was an oddity. Inside was just a big kitchen worktop with cupboards underneath and you just asked if they had... and they either did or didn't. They used to keep a stash of Rothmans Royals 24s in for me for when I ran out and was too pissed to drive to town. Looking at streetview it looks basically exactly as it did then, so it probably is still going. Good for them.

Here's My local petrol station and general play park for Shitters!

 

What's good about this one is not only can you not tell, nor can the proprietor tell you, if the cars are for sale or for the scrap but you get an attendant serve you your fuel!

 

Quirky, but often cheaper than the fake plastic stations up and down.

I was also chuffed to see that Bala, half an hour away from us, got a rightful mention :)

The petrol station in Achiltibuie is more or less the same as when I was there in the 60's.

One pump outside Achiltibuie, I like the name, Stores.

Don't know how to put a Googly pic but worth a look if only for, probably, one of the most minimalist

petrol stations in the land.

Take a screenshot of the streetview, then find the photo in Pictures folder, usually, and upload as an attachment (under more reply options). I think I'd like to see it, so would others :)
