Any one know the name of the Dawbers that had this grocers shop that can be seen in the background?

I remember Mellings shoe-shop. I actually had clogs from there as a very small child, and little patent ankle-strap shoes for walking day. I remember plastic sandals becoming fashionable for playing out in around 1960, and all us girls clamouring for some.
