Shop on the right looks to read "Charles Sloper and Son".

Found listing of a Charles Sloper and Son, Devizes, Wiltshire, drapers...

Might be a starting point.

That was a lucky find on my behalf, I was still searching for an image.

I only went to the bog and missed this one. Not that it would have mattered. The only time I have been to Devizes was to take part in the canoe race back in the early 50's.

There was a young man from Devizes
who had Marrows of two different sizes,
One was so small,it was no good at all,
The other was huge and won prizes.
