Church Street shops

What we know about this image :

Taken probably in mid 1890s as the shops are much the same as a similar image prior to electric trams of 1895. The shops  are G E Berry a watchmaker, to the left is probably Stokell paint and wallpaper and the the Clarence Hotel. All of these buildings were bombed in World War 2 and for 3 or 4 decades advertising hoardings were in their place before flats were built.
