At the Hoar Park bikers' gathering this morning, talk got round to a book that one of us was reading - the character, George Hylands, used to work at Elliott's before and after the war. I have looked but have not had any luck in finding a picture of the garage. Can anyone help please ? Thumbs up

Elliott's was at the top of Gulson Road where it met London Road next door to The Plough Public House, Joe Elliott the current owner of the car accessory store just below the original site is the original owners son . He may be the source of photographs.

They have a FaceBook page here. If you are a member of FB you could send them a message and ask if they have any photos of the period you are looking for.

Not the greatest of images but best I could see from Britain from Above - 1939 Gulson Road and environs. As a slight aside I always used to moan about how the Ring Road strangled Whitefriars, however as can been seen here - it's been built around for quite some time!

Hi Matchle55 It's amazing what you can do with Google Earth these days - even from the other side of the planet! Do these help? The images are dated March 2017.
