Car lift at a multi-storey car park BL19998

MITCHELL MOTORS COMPANY, 114 Wardour Street, Westminster, London. An early motor car, with a chauffeur in the driver's seat on a car lift. The Mitchell Motor Works and Garage was built in 1906 and offered 5 storeys of space for customers to 'garage' their vehicles, which were moved by a system of lifts and turntables. The garage facility was aimed at Soho's theatregoers, as commuting any great distance by car was still relatively unknown. Photographed by Bedford Lemere and Co. in 1907
