Billy in the 60's

The man on the left is William (Billy) Matthews, he ran the business in the 1950’s and early 1960’s.  On the right is Jim Harvey, he was originally a customer of Billy’s, it’s thought that he bought the car he is leaning against.  The two got to know each other over time and Jim ended up working for Billy.  Jim bought this picture in a few years ago.

Peter Prior took over from Billy and ran the business from around 1963.  These days the business is managed by Geoff Payne, he has been here since 1994.
