Old dealers

Post by exlkrs »

Sometime in the dim and distant past, working for a Distributor in Manchester, my path crossed with an old ex mil dealer, Jonny Ajedarian, who ran Dragon Garage at White City Roundabout, Manchester. He bought only the best Travellers out of service, and sold at premium prices. Place is now sadly under the larger road layout. Anyone remember the Garage?

Hi,
Out of curiosity, I had a look for some old pictures of Dragon Garage but the image below is all I could find on the internet.

Maybe someone on here has a better image that they can upload?
Best wishes,
Mike.
