Ron. Did this company at one time have a showroom on the other side of Mesnes Street, towards Bridgeman Terrace?. They sold top of the range motor cars. I recollect admiring the cars, when I was on the park beat.

Hello Eddie. I was apprentice to your dad Vince in the 1960s. I learned a lot from him, he was a great guy and have fond memories of working with him. I remember George the painter, Vernon the Auto Electrician, Bernard Foye, Johnny, Norman, who were mechanics and Roy and Dave who was an apprentice like me. Mabs Cross was a Vauxhall/Bedford Dealer at that time
