This photograph was shot in 1984 when every motor car DIY mechanic in the Grantham area would head for Pollard’s auto spares shop in Norton Street.

The old-fashioned motor factors was owned by George Pollard who would stand behind the counter of the chilly shop in an ancient 1950s-style winter overcoat.

George’s stock and knowledge was immense and varied.

The shop was finally pulled down around 2004 and developed into flats.
