A day of incessant rain and drenching drizzle, Sunday July 26th 2015, has not deterred hundreds of visitors from exploring the 26 acre museum site on the west side of Tipton Road in Dudley. An entire (fictional) Black Country village has been created, brick-by-original-brick, from various locations in the Black Country.

Abraham Hartill opened this shop in 1937 in Mount Pleasant, Bilston, after moving from a smaller unit in the same block. He sold mainly secondhand motorcycles, averaging fifteen or so a week. Bicycles were also sold, and hire purchase facilities were provided. The sale of spares and provision for repairs completed the service.
