Thank you to all who took the time and trouble to offer advice; to Cynthia for her guidance in working with this site and to Jax and Renes for their efforts on my behalf.
To DetEcTive, your info is really interesting.

Thank you all.

As Paul is a new poster, I will send him a friendly message on how to return to his thread. :-)

Is this one of the Chapmans?

London, England, Electoral Registers, 1832-1965
Elizabeth Chapman
Year: 1931
County or Borough: Haringey
Ward or Division/Constituency: Wood Green
Street Address: 17 Garfield Road

The other occupants of #17 are
William Alfred Chapman
Louisa Annie Freshwater
Louis Elizabeth Bunker
Philip Henry & Florence Louisa Hunt.

At one end of the road is School House so probably not the off-licence.
Alfred Harris
Eliza Harris
Alfred Charles Harris
Winifred Emma Harris

The house before School House (or possibly opposite it) -
# 20
Jeremiah Albert & Constance Beatrice Neale
John William & Rose Helen Broome

The lowest numbers
Albert Victor, Florence Annie & Lucy Atkins
William Albert & Elsie Eva Risley

Assuming no 2 is the opposite side of the road to no 1
John Thomas & Hettie Dora Bryan
Ernest & Ada Waddington

No results for 1930

In 1928
No 1
Albert Victor, Florence & Lucy Atkins
Henry & Lilian May Boult

No 2
Thomas John & Hettie Dora Bryan

No 17
William Alfred & Elizabeth Chapman
George William Mason

No 20
John William & Rose Helen Broom
Sydney Davis

It might be worth asking the local FH centre if they have trade directories which are more likely to state if any property is a shop.

Not much help ..... But maybe worth a search around

Doubt it Paul

If they lived above the business it maybe found on the electoral roll

Does anyone know the name of the people who ran the off licence on the corner of Station road and Garfield road in about 1930?
My wife's grandparents lived at 17 Garfield road. Name CHAPMAN
Or the number of the building; I may then be able to get some info from the 1911 census.
