Henry Hambley Long established garage which my father used even after we had moved to Hamilton.
Linda Mccaig Did you know George Robertson?
Moyra Lindsay Our living room window looked onto Smiths garage and the funerals left from there too. We hired our wedding cars there, Betty who did the accounts lived in the little tenement in the grounds of the garage. We also bought our petrol there. In return they were all customers at my shop. We left there in 1969. Everything we needed in life and death was within 100 yards of that flat in the Dales!
Carolyn Whittaker My Gran Jean Brownrigg worked there.
Sally Jamieson Remember it well.

I bought three cars from this garage. An Austin Metro and two Austin Maxi. It was great dealing with a small family business who provided such a personal service.
Yes bought a metro there good garage but why did it close
