I've just learned that there was a Post Office in Causewayhead... Can anyone tell me more?

I thought that I had covered every part of the history of the Post Office outlets in Penzance, when was this one, in Causewayhead? I take it that it was a sub post office.

Curiouser and Curiouser, said Alice. I note also that it also includes "Lipton's" above the posting box.

Yes I saw that and wondered if it was an advert for Lipton's Tea? I can't work out the name of the shop either, and I presume that this was taken about the 1930's but that really is a wild guess.

I remember a "directory" of later years produced by a Mr Pengelly(?), I have a vaguish idea that it was uploaded by yourself a while back. I cannot find anything at the moment in the flat. I will eventually be able to function, but I do know that I have many originals in the "spare room".
