The picture shows it on Lowther Street. They might of been down Botchergate at some point but I'm not sure? I know Graham and Roberts on Botchergate became Appleyards and I'm sure I saw somewhere that Appleyards also took over Dias or had something to do with them anyhow?

I know I have asked this before, but if anyone had or knows of any photos of Wesley Turkington BMC dealership in Lurgan Co Armagh in the late 60s through to early 80s I'd love to see them / get a copy of them for my dad who worked there at the time.

Thanks

My MK2 went out into the big wild world from here in 69!
Anyone remember the garage, don't suppose it's still there, is it?

When I moved there in 1980 GE Tunbridge had gone. There were a couple of dodgy 2nd hand car dealers at their place was on St Johns then. The BL dealer at that time was Caffyns who were a bit further up the road. By the mid 1980's the dodgy dealers had gone and the place became Sevenoaks Hi-Fi, which it still is to this day.

The H A Hamshaw building hasn't changed much in appearance other than the changes in building signage, probably because it was built in the 1930's Art Deco style of architecture and is now likely to be a listed building.
