This is my dad’s garage, or his scaled down ‘retirement’ version. From Cork in Ireland he sailed the seven seas with the Merchant Navy as a radio operator in the late 50’s and 60’s, then settled in London as a self taught mechanic. He’s still taking things apart and welding them back together at 73. I never realise how similar our working spaces were until I took these pictures. I guess that’s where I got it from. Making and fixing things – tinkering around a workshop. On not throwing things out, he says ‘It’ll come in handy if you never use it’.
