The site prior to being used for as a garage was used to house animals, and probably before that to grow plants, since a large plant nursery was active in this area for many years.
Well the demolition is now over and a large pit has been created in an attempt to remediate the hydrocarbons that escaped through the years; must have been considerable, because the smell when I was there on Sunday, the 21st of September was very strong of old hydrocarbons.
Here is a photo of how it looked on the 17th of August 2012.
And on the 7th of April of this year, ONE ♺ TWO ♺ THREE fencing surrounding the compound, demolition imminent. And also a photo from May 12th 2014.
I have also created a set of photographs of the compound on Flickr, which shows the present state of the site, and one day hopefully some of the older images of the compound that must exist somewhere out there in the ether.
And now, a little of the social history, and activities of the Transport Services.
