Petrol Station Crompton Street?
Started by: admin (250) Report abuse
Does anyone remember a petrol station on the site of the garage in Crompton street?( see link) Just met someone in the History Shop who is looking for a picture of it. He said it was in the Evening Posts RETRO page a while ago.

Yes, I remember it. I bought a little "Esso Man" keyring from there in the 1960s.
