The elegant little garage on Church Path, I&K Brown, shut its doors for the final time on Friday evening, after 40 years serving Wanstead motorists. Wansteadium reader Faisal Nisar was probably their last customer – he was having his MoT done – and recorded the moment in these photographs.

Messrs Brown and Brown are retiring, and Wansteadium wishes them very well. The plan is for the site to be redeveloped into three new houses – one four-bedroom and two three-bedrooms. The designs had caused some consternation – some living nearby objected to the modern design. Planning permission was however granted at the end of June this year.
