Colliers Garage, Wansford (1925)

Looking along the Great North Road in Wansford with the Haycock Hotel on the far right and Collier’s Garage in the distant left just before the bridge. The sign on the left says “Colliers Garage, Automobile Engineers & Agents” and, at the bottom, it advertises “Clincher Tyres” which found favour with motorists in the 1897-1925 period.

The garage buildings were demolished in 1993 with new terraced properties erected on the site ten years later.
