2024-02-18 (Day 049) About To Be Transformed

I noticed this lift (cherry picker?) in the grounds of the nearby garage today.

This space used to be used as a hand car wash – you would drive there and your car would be washed by two or three people. They did a thorough and very rapid job, and they always seemed busy.

Now – according to local gossip – they have been told that they cannot rent the space any more, and that it is going to be replaced with an automatic car wash. And I am going to assume that this piece of plant is the start of the process of creating the car wash.

It will be interesting to see whether the new, automatic car wash is as popular as the old hand car wash was. Time will tell.
