I work in Salt Lane and I've been watching the work starting on the office block on the corner of Greyfriars Lane to add levels and convert it to student housing (even more!) I recall that when my father was Works Manager for the Martin's Garage Group who had the two sites on either side of the A45 at Baginton the owner, Mr. Arthur Martin opened a showroom in that building. The interesting thing was that cars were driven into the basement carpark and onto a hydraulic lift which then raised them through a hole in the floor into the show room. sadly no trace of that innovation remains in the building. The other interesting thing is that Arthur Martin who lived on the Kenilworth Road always had his personal Humber car sprayed a ghastly lilac colour! Incidentally my grand parents owned the garage on the Holyhead Rd through the war as Pritchard’s Garage I believe, before it became Bridge Clock Garage. When it was sold so my grandmother could buy a hotel outside Southampton my father had to complete his apprenticeship at the Alvis works across the road from the garage (now a retail park as you know)
