SAAB was way after that. The MG sign was high up on the left hand side as you went down Wollaton Street.

The garage was Morkell and Carnhill (sp?). They were Nottingham's main Rover dealers.

What happened to them, I seem to recall them moving to Lenton or somewhere.

Or were they swallowed up?

I think that the building was used by one of the public utilities i.e. water, electric or gas back in the 60's On second thoughts was it telephone?
