Full Description

A wartime garage was noted by ARCH's Evanton Wartime Remains project in 2013. A wooden building on the south side of Balconie Street was used by Kenny McKenzie who had the smiddy on the opposite side of the road. He used it for repairs to agricultural machinery, bicycles, motor bikes and petrol sales. In the 1930s it expanded to include a pump. The front of the garage became a showroom for bicycles which were crated to Novar station and then assembled in the workshop. Later it was used as a showroom for Triumph and Citroen cars, and tractors. In more recent times the building was used by Kitcheners, a showroom for kitchens. It was demolished around 10 years prior to this project. <1> <2>
