    Thumbs up Archers Garage (Shirley) Ltd

    I would like to find some photos of this (long since gone) business in Shirley it was on Stratford Rd and behind it was the BSA/Lucas factory. Any info and or photos would be appreciated - I served my apprenticeship there from 1966 and they were good times and some great memories.

    Bernie, The photo of the café interior is dated as 1930's, so assume they both come from that time
