According to Gore's Directory for 1900, W.Towers was a seller of 'fried fish' at 83 Victoria Road, New Brighton.The picture looks like its was taken around then give or take ten years either side.
If the location is correct the building is long gone and is now a car park just past Peggy Gadflys (no.93), near the roundabout at the end of Victoria Road.

Scott's Butchers was at No. 83 Victoria Road for many many years.

The picture does not look like Victoria Road to me. The old York Hotel was numbered 79-81 and it's clearly not in the picture.

Yes, you're right Paul. I forgot that the Victoria Road I was trying to clarify, but turning the water muddy instead, was the Seacombe one, later renamed Borough Road.
I remember reading an old local newspaper of the time (not at the time!) explaining the renaming was because some War Office telegrams informing of killed, missing or wounded servicemen were delivered wrongly because of the streetname confusion causing great (and double) distress in some cases.
