Did Automobiles Ltd, South Parade Bangalore later become the famous Webb's service station? They seem to have the same address and agencies for the same brands. Credit to the same source on facebook.

I think "South Parade" was the name of the road where Webbs was and remained to be in what became MG Road Bangalore latter on.

The road was so called/named in reference is to the south side of the Army Parade grounds. I don't think they (Webbs) were known as anything wlse other than Webbs ever. Of course this is open to correction by stalwart Bangaloreans like KPS and others.

Best Regards & Drive Safe
