The shop in the photo looks gleaming, if it is a shot of when it opened, it would date the photograph between 1911 and 1916, Standing in the doorway would likely be John Williams, manager (1916 Directory)
Previously (1911 Directory) is was a butchers shop, owned by Mrs Elizabeth Owen.
True-Form were owned by J Spears & Co who later went on, 1927, to acquire Freeman, Hardy & Willis, a shoe store that had a long association with Grange Rd.
195 was on the corner of Grange Rd/Gomer St.
