Briggs was a locally famous ironmongers and hardware shop for many years. John Henry Briggs set up in business in the 1880s and was across the road until he bought this property in c1920 (requires verification). The business closed its doors for the last time in c1999.

The White Hart is still there and prospering.

The shop at the back says 'Winter & Ainger' in the window. See the fine c1920s 'Winter & Ainger' mineral water bottle which was recently uploaded to this site:

In the other window, it's just possible to read 'North Wold Prize Medal Table Waters'.
