    Suppose it could be either. I just don t really think of houses in London having garages - maybe in the suburbs, but I am a country bumpkin so know nothing.

      Thanks for your answers.

      To specify, the firm's business was electronics, producing spare parts for radios (at the beginning).

      And they started in late 1930's - not sure if that does not reduce the chances for "garaz" a bit, but perhaps London was full of "garaz" ever since the cars got popular & affordable...?

      If this changes your ideas please let me know.

      Thank you!

      Tomas
