Any one got any information on H.A.Saunders Ltd London Rd High Wycombe?

My Woody was Despatched there Pre launch and not sold until mid November so I assume it was one of there show room models.

The old H A Saunders building in Hitchin (where I spent much time buying mini bits as a youth) is now occupied by Asda. I think in it's latter days it became part of Mann Egerton.

Amusingly, on the other of the road, was Sanders, a Triumph main dealer.

My Sept 65 Cooper S was delivered to Wadhams Ltd, Southsea.
It was first registered in NZ in Feb 1970 to a woman/girl who maybe emigrated here and brought the car with her.
Anyone have information or photos on Wadhams?

Whilst looking for a picture or two for the Period Picture thread I came across this.

The garage was on Campbell Road, Stoke. Perhaps some remember it

Peppers were a big BMC Garage Group (Morris and Wolseley) in the Potteries.
My first car, a Moggy thou' (773 LVT) was originally supplied by the Hanley branch of Peppers.
Here's that building in the 1960's, at the turn of the century looking very sad, and as it is now.
Great piece of 1930's architecture.
Here's a link to the history of the Peppers Group

It was quite a few years ago now so I might be mistaken but I think this is where I first came across '1 ELY' in Crewe , the Downton 997 press car now owned by Francis.

great to see that the art deco peppers building has been saved from a derelict state, would have been so easy for the owners to have a 'accidental fire' as an excuse to drop it and just build some grey porridge on the site instead
