Interesting NY, in that directory for 1912 there are two ironmongers next to each other. Fletcher at no.16, Mattersons at no.17. I wonder if they were associated businesses.

Question

Argon, Yes but they were different ironmongers if I remember rightly, one sold agriculture items and one domestic items. But this was the beauty of the Burges, several menswear, each specialising in some item or other, several footwear shops, the milliners, ladies hats - on the other side were a number of watch shops. All had something different on offer, and of course the ladies, if they didn’t like the owner, then? But to me it looks 1938/9ish. These photo's conjure up some story, like the lad that went to work in that Dunn’s shop, 1950's, after being left at the top of the tl ladder over a roaring fire with the fire brigade.

Kaga, Thank you , with the two businesses being adjacent I was puzzled but of course if they had different specializations it makes sense. Thumbs up
