Didn’t that used to be Bennett’s Garage? There was also a radio/electronics shop in that row. ‘Super Radio’?

Yes it was originally Bennetts. I used to help my dad in my school holidays to repair used cars prior to sale but by this time late 1950s it was Hopcrofts Garage. The basement held probably 15 to 20 cars and had small repair facilities, Bill Hopcroft later injected some cash into Notts County F.C. and helped save it from extinction.
