Quite a bit of this is taken up with off topic posts It would be helpful in future if members could keep their posts relevant to the thread Title,those that are not will be deleted. Thanks.

    The picture 'somewhere on Aston Road North' could be Aston Brook garage. This garage was on the corner of Aston Road North and Powell St. The bicycle(s) could be a clue. This garage went on to be Banning's I beleive. The bicycle was used for advertising into the sixties. Take a look at this link;
