The answer to your question is Yes! This is Hullion, and is still occupied by members of the Gibson family - though now as a private residence.

I can remember putting petrol in my Grandad Jimmy Yorstons car at the Hullion pump, I had to turn the handle for ages as it still wasn't mains driven.

I mind Dave Gibson's van. We waited on van days so we could spend our pocket money. This was in the fifties when we holidayed at the Schoolhouse in Wasbister every year.
