Smith Knight Fay at Gee Cross


At the corner of Apethorn Lane and Stockport Road can be found the VW dealership of Smith Knight Fay.

Once the site was occupied by a row of cottages and a clock tower. Take a look at them on Old Hyde.

Memories - I worked there for a spell. It has changed a heck of a lot since it was redeveloped.

I don't recall these at all Gerald, but have seen the odd picture such of this... I believe their was a polic station as well near there... all these rough type in Gee Cross needed policing back then... ha! nothings changed then....

There was a 'Big House' on the corner of Apethorn Lane that was pulled down not that long ago.... that was a 3 story high building but I cannot recall the brickwork looking as nice as that.. My dad was a fireman during the war and the building was used for 'Fire Watch'... the building also housed an Air Raid Siren as well.... I remember it being sounded at certain times to test it... The Siren was moved when the building was pulled down and it can now be seen across the road on a telegraph pole on Rosemary Drive.
