This is another mystery workplace. Again, I think it is likely to be from the Shevington or Standish area. Does anyone have any ideas?

With a van cab in the background and an inspection pit in the foreground they look to be mechanics, and with there being seventeen it must have been a large, busy garage or employer, and a quality one too as they are all wearing ties.

I was going to suggest maybe Heinz transport garage on Bradley Lane, but then I thought that maybe they would have had H J Heinz emblazoned on their overalls, or at that time maybe not?
