Fine weather, a free Sunday, and the fascination of a friend’s newly acquired Citroën 2 c.v. prompted investigation of the picture titled “Contemporary Scene” on page 245 of Motor Sport for April. The first elderly citizen encountered in Irvine successfully led our search to the very building portrayed, original in all aspects, except a smaller entrance than in 1913. The building is now used by a hosiery manufacturer.
What is probably more interesting is the fact that fifty yards farther along the road Mr. J. B. Shaw, son of the gentleman in the picture, manages a modern Esso garage. Unfortunately, Mr. Shaw was not at home, but I left details, and possibly by now you may have further details.
