David Rosenfield Garage
« on: 17:33:56, 06/12/17 »
The main distributors for Rover cars in Manchester in the 1950's were David Rosenfield Ltd, with premises in Cheetham Hill Road and Peter Street.  They were a substantial business operating well before WW2 at least into the 1960's also selling Rolls Royce and other makes.  Does anyone know what happened to the business?  Are there likely to be any photographs of their premises?

Hi & welcome Landy  :)

Hows this, it is 1970. Cheetham hill.

Was it called Henly's before David Rosenfield on Peter street, Manchester

Thanks for posting this. Is it possible that anyone has earlier photos of their garage or any knowledge of when they were taken over by Henlys.  I think it may have been mid 1960ís. I have a 1950 advertising poster but any other advertising would also be interesting. Many thanks. Richard

Hi Landy


There is a picture of the premises on Peter Street in the Manchester Archive collection at the following link

http://images.manchester.gov.uk/Display.php?irn=68410&QueryPage=%2Findex.php%3Fsession%3Dpass&session=pass&QueryName=BasicQuery&QueryPage=%2Findex.php%3Fsession%3Dpass&Anywhere=SummaryData%7CAdmWebMetadata&QueryTerms=peter+street&QueryOption=Anywhere&StartAt=121


When this picture was taken it looks like the premises had been taken over by Grahams Vauxhall but you can still see the Henleys sign at the front of the building. If you click the image it will expand for you.

Hope that this helps
