Definitely not 1920: see flight number AFL3692 dated 31st March 1946. This image follows on directly from EAW000063.

Was this photo taken in 1920? It shows the two large airship hangers demolished, while EPW047581, taken in 1935, shows them still standing.

I believe this image should be the other way around. The site appears to be a mirror image of that shown in EPW000060a, and comparison with a map of the area (particularly the railway), would suggest that this image is flipped left-right.

Terminus of Kingsnorth Light Railway KLR), which connected this refinery to the SER (later SR) at Sharnal Street. KLR was opened in 1915 and closed around 1950. Locos used were a Kerr Stuart 0-4-0ST and petrol shunters.
