Nice old shop front on show at the moment. Does anyone know any of the who/what about M.Brooke?

Mabel Brooke ran the sweetshop / tobacconist shop.  She was there in 1939 (with husband unemployed clerk Cecil) and still there in 1957 (Kellys Directory). But by 1969 it was in the hands of M. Staniland, a confectioner according to Kellys, so must have boarded over the Brookes' name.  Cecil died in 1983 and Mabel in 1995.
