When my dad and I had a butchers shop in the early 1980's at the top of Brockham Lane, Brockham , Surrey that garage - above cig machine - was literally 200 yards around the corner on the A25. Used to sell petrol etc, then stood empty for about 20 years before becoming a computer repair shop. Now for about the last 2 years its a small car sales plot. Small world

Love the attribution Lummox.

In 1966 I paid my first visit as a young schoolboy rock climbing on the Isle of Skye.

One wet day we did a little bus trip around various places on the island and went past what purported to be a petrol station in the Northern (remote) part of the island. I still recall seeing the single petrol pump, with globe atop, stood on its lonesome on a single lane road. Then - decades later.... what should be delivered to BBR for Auction but - that self same petrol pump. When I told the fella I knew EXACTLY where it was from he was absolutely gobsmacked.

Us collectors have encyclopaedic memories sometimes, lol!
