Broome's Garage 1936
Another building at the Black Country Living Museum, this time a replica of the Conway Garage at Sedgley Road, Dudley, run by mechanic Alex Broome. Alex Broome was a racing mechanic for Sunbeam, including being involved with the 1927 1000hp land speed record car nicknamed 'The Slug', but started his own garage in 1936 which ran for many years.
