Lynn Street east 05a - fourth block

What we know about this image :

This picture was probably taken sometime during the 1920s, or possibly slightly earlier.  It shows E. & M. Alexander Ltd, 'The Great Tailors'.  It was at 31 Lynn Street, on the corner with Surtees Street, in the location subsequently occupied by Granthams.  The site had been occupied by Furness Bros & Reid Ltd, provision merchants, and was taken over by Alexander's sometime before 1917.  By 1933, the site had been taken over by Fifty Shilling Tailors.

The shop to the left (No.29) is A. Prinsky, watchmaker.  He later moved to No.25, with No.25½ occupied by J. Simon, 'Inquiry Agent'.
