This is the old George Fitt filling station adjacent to the Chestfield roundabout. It stood on the site of what is today the Shell filling station. George Fitt was a successful local businessman who established The Marine Hotel, on the seafront, from a pair of adjoining houses in 1906 having moved from London due to poor health. He also established a successful garage business in Tankerton in 1919, which can be seen in images EAW023138 & EAW023139.
