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

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?
