Petrol pumps, globes, clothing, enamel advertising signs, pedal cars, badges, mascots, garage equipment, die-cast scale models, artworks, motor spirit and oil containers, toys and games, pottery and glassware. These historical artefacts, once quite common are now very collectable and are a reminder of a bygone age.
