Found this shop on Derby Road - could be Geneva Motors?

Couldn't see how to save a picture from Google street view.
I used 'Print Screen' and copied into another program before exporting as jpg.  Not as good quality as it started out but at least I got something.

Yes, you can just see that the S has been googly-compressed in to P of Specialist.

Google cannot be trusted: being foreign, it has decided that  Bermondsey SE1 is actually Camberwell SE1.
Camberwell is actually two wards away! I have notified them many times, but once something wrong has been put on computer records it always stays!
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face
