Hi Phil, Welcome to the site. If you want help in finding information about your family, you should give your grandfather's name. I assume the shop you mention is no 90, listed in 1932 as being Frederick Winwood. His sister was presumably Sarah Jane Winwood, who lived there from at least 1920 till sometime between 1950 and 1952 (from the electoral rolls (partially online)). The shop was on the south side of the street either on the eastern corner or one from the eastern corner with Wheeler St. I do have a picture which is stated to be Clifford st junction with wheeler st in c1908, but am not at present sure if the exact position claimed is correct. However the picture is below.

I think I may have solved the attribution ofn the photo. I think it was looking up wheeler st, and the road accross was clifford st . In that case no 90 is either on the right hand corner this side of the junction, or the next house along round the corner
