Marks and Spencer original store

What we know about this image :

This is the original Lynn Street store which was next to the Market Buildings at 39 Lynn Street. It was next door but one to Lamb's the jewellers going away from Church Street. At the time of the photo it seemed very much a hardware store, advertising tea sets at 8 shillings and 11 pence (about 45p today), baskets, earthenware and enamelled aluminium goods. The photo will have been taken before 1929 as by then the shop had moved to larger premises. This store became Lipton's.
