It's Not Quite A Jaguar
This photo was not taken today, Hands up I'll admit it.
This is a photo of a slide I found.... I'm fascinated by it.
I remember this garage.. in this incarnation... my Nant and Nunk worked there, part-time I think. I remember calling in, and them coming out to put petrol in the car.... remember when people did that?
Then later...a couple took it over -"Entrepreneurs who had their fingers in a lot of pies. A Restaurant to eat in. A boutique to get dressed in. A Travel Company - to get cheap flights and nice villas... and a garage, with a car rental, so that they could drive around.
Quite fascinating how they jiggled their lives around a range of businesses - getting other people to run them, whilst they just had the time of their lives (allegedly).
It's gone now - I can't tell you quite how long ago it's been gone. I looked at google maps 2008 - and the flats which stand there now -were there then...
I find it weird how things which were once so familiar disappear, and are gone apart from in our memories - and the things which take their place become so natural to our mind.
