Albert Rutherford Motor car proprietor 44 Goddard Hall Road (Kelly's 1925)

Goddard Hall Road ??

Firvale end of Herries Road

It runs from Firvale Road to Crabtree Road.

It's a house so it must have been his home address.

Reliant dealer (a motorcycle dealers but they sold and repaired Reliants.)

Sold a range of motorcycles and had other shops in the City but only the Mansfield Road one did Reliants.

Another local dealership was Woodleigh Motors at Dronfield Woodhouse, but that's just outside the City boundary.

Bentley Bros (Crosspool) Ltd

461 Manchester Rd

Who were they dealers for?

I think they were a Vauxhall dealer because, as a kid, I remember going to see a full size FAB1 there and that was based on a Bedford Truck chassis

Oh yes forgot that, I saw FAB 1 at Bentley's on St Mary's Rd

There certainly was. Earnest Brocklehurst I believe. It was where the large petrol station is now. I have a hazy image of it in my memory.

I think it went in the late 60's

I've searched on and off for a long time with no luck so I don't think you'll have much luck with a photo or even much information.

"Sits back and waits.

Hopefully, to be proved wrong." :)

I have been led to believe that Brocklehust traded with the Rootes Group
