Allen Bros (Mitcham) Ltd, London Road.
Despite the Standard Triumph signage and Herald advert in the window which dates from April 1961 Allens converted to a Morris dealer in the 1960's. Like many an old BMC garage it became a Kwik Fit.

Below is the same site September 2014 - you can still just make out the tell tale signs of the NEW and CARS that were above either side of the door. The showroom seems to have been extended and the road made a lot wider in the intervening years. These buildings were demolished around 2017.
