However, I was
pleased to receive an e-mail from Robin Brown, Tranent, East
Lothian in November 2006,
telling me that the petrol pump could still be found at
Peebles and that he had photographed it :
"The pump in your picture; or a very good copy is
still in the same spot, at the same garage in Peebles.
One of my work mates used to fuel up at that very
pump. He told me how it used to work. These days it has bird feeders hanging
from it. It could also do with a lick of paint.
I popped round at 7.30 this morning and took a
picture of it. No doubt I'll take some more.
The shot is in colour but I wanted to try it out in black & white.
Here is another
