T & T Motor Works in Coinagehall Street, Helston, about 1932. In addition to providing engineering and specialist repair services, the garage also had a sales showroom and a number of Ford motor cars are lined up along the road. The number plates on the cars were registered in Lancashire between November 1929 and November 1932. Petrol pumps can be seen to the left of the photograph. The hoses for the pumps had to be long enough to stretch over the kennels in order to reach the cars on the road. In 2017, this is now the site of the Post Office. Signage for the premises of E Kempthorne, Tailor and Outfitter can be seen on the building next door. T & T Motor Works moved premises to 101 Meneage Street just after World War 2.
