Image shows an old confectioner's and grocer's shop located at number 11 Wainwright Terrace. Mrs. Mary Garside was the proprietor and had been from around 1927 until at least the 1940s. She is likely to be the lady posing in the doorway wearing a long white pinafore. A man in a cloth cap is standing behind her. Prior to 1927 the shopkeeper was Squire Garside Junior.

Tom Mix, a well known actor of that era, is featured in the adverts. Other adverts include Cherry Blossom Boot Polish, Van Houtens Cocoa, Lyons Tea and Frys Chocolate.
