This 'Chinese' style garage (petrol filling station) was built in 1928 by Edmund B. Clarke. It has its own garden with low shrubs and a pool, surrounded by a low wall. It is a remarkable survival from the early days of popular motoring. At this time only rich people would have been able to afford a motor car.
