Another Milsom’s bill

We have already seen A bill and receipt from Mr Milsom. Reginald Milsom ran Milsom’s Garage in Market Lavington, assisted by his daughter, Marjorie. The bill in our previous blog dates from 1950 and is handwritten.

Things had moved on a bit by 1957. A bill from that year had a different design on its billhead and was typed.

Mr Carter had obviously had a problem with his car engine and work was needed on the big ends. That work was done in March and a battery was charged in April, costing half a crown. (Some people had a trickle charger and charged their own car batteries at home.) However, the bill was only settled towards the end of May.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
