George Wilson's garage

George Wilson's garage is an run-down auto shop at the edge of the Valley of Ashes that is owned by George Wilson.

Trivia and facts.Edit

The garage is in ownership of George Wilson; a close business partner to Tom Buchanan. Tom sells George cars, so George can 'fix 'em up' and sell them, earning a profit. However Tom only sells the cars so George can supply for his wife, who is also Tom's mistress. Myrtle (George's wife) has plans to leave with her husband, leaving Tom behind; this shows how Tom is in an illusion that Myrtle loves him. The garage is located near New York in the Valley of Ashes. The entire area is covered in ashes hence the name, this is where the notoriously Dr. Tjeckleburg sign is. The sign is used as a sign of judgment as he watches over. The eyes judges Daisy when she kills Myrtle, the sign judges Tom for the crime of debauchery. The garage sits alone in the ashes, and is rather gloomy and covered in a thick layer of ash, this foreshadows the owner who is also alone and covered in ash.
