W C Gaunt Co who were the concessionaires for Packard Motors. They had a showroom in Piccadilly. Later, the general manager of this site, Leonard Williams, opened a Packard sales and servicing centre on the Great West Road, Brentford in 1931. It was built in the industrial art deco vernacular typical of that locality. That building was destroyed by a V2 rocket in March 1945.
