History of Dover Garages

History of Garages in Dover, Kent.

I am attempting to build a site to show historic information about development and activities at the sites of Garages in Dover, Kent. I started off by thinking that it would be easy to catalogue the old garages of Dover, I was more interested in those that were dealing with cars.  However I soon found that this is not how they developed, and soon was including, coachworks, taxi-cab garages, Cycles, Motor Cycles and even some that also did prams, and one advert showing the first Car Laundry in Kent, so it has expanded somewhat from my original thoughts......

The main part of the site can be accessed "Garages by address" in the menu bar. This will list the garages by address, however depending on your browser, you may be able to sort the table by clicking on the headers. 

You will see that this site is still very much under development, it's format may change over time.  I am doing this for my own amusement, and to share the information about the history of Dover Garages, it is going to be an ongoing project for me.

Information has come from local directories and:-
