Delivery arms extend from the pumps to the front wall and extensions of these can be swung for delivery to vehicles. The pumps are labelled Beckmeter and this particular design was first licensed in 1935. HISTOPY: This building is likely to have had a long association with various form of transport since it was already an omnibus company before Mr J Mulley bought the property in 1939.
