Badge Friday: BP William Davies, Carmarthen

Here's a badge from Rachel's collection promoting a local garage from the West Wales Town of Carmarthen.

I imagine as the badge was promoting British Petroleum there could be a few variations of it dotted around  England, Wales and Scotland.

The simplistic nature of the design indicates a 1970s feel for me. I lived in Carmarthen between 1994 and 1999 and remember this particular garage William Davies on St Catherine Street.

Unfortunately it closed down during this period and was demolished some years ago. It has since made way for a car park entrance leading to the wonderful new shopping centre that now graces the town, so this badge is something of a relic to Carmarthen's history!
