That rings a bell, Rayfield Autos. Not sure if it was Rayfield's, but the garage on the corner of Vecqueray St. always amused me. A sign in the window, all in upper case, said WE SPECIALISE IN BRITISH AND FOREIGN CARS. I often wondered: "Well, are there any other types?" Smile

I used to buy my caps here for my Lone Ranger cap gun, served by an immaculate man in a pristine white cow gown.

Does anyone remember a Bill Lewis who worked on sales at the Spon End garage, he was a good friend of Ted Aston?

On 24th Oct 2013 10:28am, mickw said: My brother was a chef at the Black Horse in Marton when Bob Ayres was landlord. I remember that a person called Aston used to drink in there, not sure of the Christian name but having looked at the Aston Coaches Historic Website I found Harry Aston owned two Armstrong Siddeley Sapphires. My brother bought a two tone grey Sapphire from Bob Ayres in the 60s, the registration was RWK610. I wonder if this was one of Harry Aston's Sapphires, it was a lovely car
On 24th Oct 2013 1:26pm, Astons Garages said: I am Harry Aston's son, it would be my father who went in there but could also have been Ted Aston who lived along Birdingbury Road. My father had the Armstrong Siddeleys but he also bought and sold just about any vehicle, do you have any photos of it, will get the numbers checked Was Bob Ayres the landlord that played the cello? Do you have any tales to tell about the Black Horse, Astons Coaches were right opposite, I am also in touch with David Fry of Marton Historical Society who is keen to learn about any history of Marton Please feel free to contact me direct by email.
The person who drank in the pub was possibly Ted Aston as he lived in Marton with his wife Muriel - he certainly did in the 60's. Ted and Muriel also had a place in Spain and I believe they had a speed boat business, my mum and dad went to visit them. Edited by member, 12th Jun 2018 11:53 am
