A wonderful old photo!

John Pettit and Sons, Butchers on Bethlehem Street in Grimsby sadly shut up shop in October 2017 having just celebrated their 125th anniversary.

An old Kelly's Directory shows a John Pettit, butcher at 33 & 35 Bethlehem Street Grimsby and a Charles Pettit, butcher at 197 Cleethorpe Road, Grimsby. Surely the two were related?

Does anyone recognise the house in the background?
