The Burrage family are also involved in another business on these premises. Carter & Burrage Music Dealers sell sheet music. (See photo). Perhaps this business occupies the ground-floor shop while William has his hair salon upstairs. More information would be welcomed. Who was Carter? Any relation to Chaplin and Carter at No 14? Dates?
