When J.J. Kelso died
closing his shop
took some of his wares
and placed them in the window.
The shelves age, dust and dirt
gathers, ivy and other green
grows through floor cracks.
But tourists stop
and amaze at the window with the Irish Dunlop genuine tube; the Lucas contact set;
a fan belt in a box; Restorio, the super car polish; Tranco valves; Ford spark plugs;
an advertising board for Leyland, Australia; a Payen decarbonising set;
Duron, the finest break lines in the world, Borg & Beck clutch plate;
Crank shaft for Austin 7 & Big 7-1936/39; Feroda brake linings;
Sinclair radiator stop leak; ball bearing water pump kit
and a calendar:
Esso wish all our customers a Happy Christmas and prosperous 1951.
