In February 1980 the Evening Argus devoted a full page to the old garage in Handcross High Street and its proprietor, Archie Quick. The article also featured his son, Martin Quick, the old petrol pump and the breakdown truck converted from an Austin 20 taxi.
Previous photographs of the garage on the website can be found by inserting “Quick" in the search box above.

Bicycle wheels, inner tubes, split links, valve rubbers and brake cables. Rods, reels, line, hooks, swivels, floats and split shot,and of course air gun pellets!
I count myself very lucky to have grown up when Mr Quick was around, one of a kind.
