Alec Bennett motorcyles in Portswood – late 1970s / early 1980s

In response to a query from one of our followers ref when Alec Bennett’s motorcycle business was in Portswood, we have now heard back from SEE Southampton. Thank you SEE Southampton! This is what they say and they also sent us a couple of pictures!
“Alec Bennett returned from racing in the 1930s to concentrate on his motorcycle business. He had premises in what was Blockbuster Video. Later they opened over the road in what is now Portswood Centre. I remember the ground floor slab being laid in what was a very hot summer in what must have been the late 1970s early 1980s”.
