DUCK SLATTERYS GAS STATION - MID 80'S

As the name suggests, Duck Slattery's Gas Station in South Ward Road was decked out with old American gas station paraphernalia - petrol pumps, vehicle parts, nameplates, oil adverts etc.
I took these snaps in the mid 80's and they show the exterior and interior of the pub.
It's main feature, however, was the front half of a Cadillac hanging on the inside wall above the entrance, as if it had just crashed through the brickwork!
I did take a picture of that too but can't find it at the moment.
The ad, dating from August 1986, gives a fuller description of the place.
Appropriately, Duck's was a popular stop-off place to get tanked up before hitting Fat Sams next door.
