If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?

My Dad was born in Lowestoft in 1921 and went to Roman Hills Boys school. His name is William Thomas Pritchard and he lives in Edinburgh, aged 94. He started on the trawlers in 1935 when he was just 14yrs old.
This photo show a small photographer's kiosk. I obtained a Frith print of this image but with a magnifier all I can see is the dot screen used to produce the print. I wonder if anybody knows who was running the photographer's kiosk in 1955?
