1960s Motor Repairs - a Memory of Caversham.

Does anyone remember Burtons motor accessories in Church Rd Caversham?
When I had my first car, a 1934 Standard Nine I was always in the shop buying parts for it. Also for my following motors, A35, Austin Healey and MG Midget they always needed something, a battery, brake parts, oil, filters, hoses, antifreeze etc those were the days you did it yourself. I am still doing the same on my current MG a 1952 MG TD. Sadly not many shops around now like Mr Burtons
