Just looked up those addresses on the 1911.

35 Devon Street was a private house (then occupied by the Snowden family).

Residential properties in Manvers Street only go up to no 124. Listed after that are three properties categorised as buildings not used as dwellings - a blacksmiths, an engineers shop and a waste merchants.

So it does seem likely that he lived at 35 Devon and conducted business at Manvers Street.

Could those 2 addresses be next to each other on a street corner?

Look at the street directory.He is listed at both addresses as "marine store dealer".
Could be two shops or one shop and a house.
