Have your say

Ah, how times have changed when it comes to garages.

Remember the days when an attendant would fill up your car for you and you didn’t even have to get out from behind the wheel?

This lovely old photograph show the filling station with probably the best view from the pumps in the area, high above Portsmouth on the top of Portsdown Hill.
