There is a connection between my contributions on the Exeter Basin Branch section and this request for information.
The onetime family involvement with the business of Garton & King Ltd not only involved the foundry site at Tan Lane adjacent to the Basin Branch between 1938/9 and 1981 but also the Central Station Building in Queen Street, Exeter. In 1938 the company took a lease on the premises on the extreme left of the frontage of Exeter Central Buildings for their Showrooms. The right hand abutment to the Queen Street bridge over the Railway line when looking towards the Station area (roughly eastwards) was immediately next to the end wall of the premises - see attachments.
The company remained at this location up until 1957 when the lease expired and with no possibility of renewal. I am very anxious to acquire an image of this specific Showroom and therefore any image of Central Station that includes it taken between 1938 and 1957 - but no later. I am hopeful to use the image, with permission and attribution to the copyright holder on the www.exeterfoundry.org.uk website
Can anybody help with an image please or suggest a source please - Richard needs the period 1938 to 1957.
All the Best, Andrew Many thanks Andrew
