Much Binding in the Marsh

Shropshire is a treasure trove of hidden gems, corners from another time. One such is Birchfield Garage, in Much Wenlock. Three redundant pumps, from different eras, stand sentinel. The central one is a Gilbarco (Gilbert and Barker as was), and that on the right is likely an Avery. Doubtless various collectors have sought to acquire them, but they look right just where they are, waiting for an Austin A40 to come by.
