Thanks Alan, it was Jean Duncan jnr who, I believe, originally identified it as Alford, but you may be right. Can anyone else confirm location?

BP as used in the sense of British Petroleum only dates back to the 1980's. In the 1920's it was called Ango-Persian Oil Company (APIOC). They had however bought a small Swiss company with the logo BP - an abbreviation of Benzin und Paraffin! This was in turn used in a 1928 advert 'Motor "BP" Spirit' intending it to be interpreted as 'Best Possible'! Amusing perhaps, but no help with where the local depot might have been located.
