I don't think this is Northern Ireland. The only `Workshops for the Blind`, I remember was in Lawnbrook Avenue, off the Shankill Road.  The night helmets were worn by the RUC after 10-00pm at night, all year round. It coincided with Pub closing time.    :)

I agree. I think its london, according to wikipedia, the newspaper banners on the hoarding is a london based Sunday paper. The paper was renamed over its life on a number of occassions, though none indicate the name shown here.
Here is the wikipedia entry:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Reynold's News was a Sunday newspaper in the United Kingdom.
The paper was founded as Reynolds's Weekly Newspaper[1] by George W. M. Reynolds in 1850, who became its first editor. By 1870, the paper was selling more than 350,000 copies per week. George died in 1879 and was succeeded as editor by his brother, Edward Reynolds.[2]
After Edward's death in 1894, the paper was bought by Henry Dalziel[2] and in 1924 was renamed Reynold's Illustrated News.[1] In 1929, the paper was bought by the Co-operative Press, linked to the Co-operative Party,[2] and in 1936 its title was shortened to Reynold's News.
After the left-wing journalist H. N. Brailsford wrote a series of articles in Reynold's News criticising the Moscow trials, the paper received hundreds of letters both supporting Brailsford and criticising him.[3] In 1944, it was again renamed as Reynold's News and Sunday Citizen,[1] but the paper began losing money in the 1950s; it was relaunched in 1962 as a tabloid named the Sunday Citizen, but the final issue was on 18 June 1967.[2]


I cannot make out the writing on the other posters, something about "full text". Its good fun this sleuthing.  :)

Result. !



Also from the 1918 directory,... 28 Royal Avenue,... and you know, there seems to be very little mention of the exact address and location elsewhere,... so you all just recovered and proved, a little bit of Belfast and Ulster history. BTW, I can't recall exactly when it closed and moved following it's merger with another similar organisation, but I think that it was in the 1940's,... so the policeman's helmet, along with the newspaper poster, is suggesting a pre 1922 date for the picture.

WHERES THIS STREET ?

I would say this photo is before 1922 and the Poiceman is a member of the RIC. I certainly remember the RUC wearing 'night helmets' , but I thought it was after midnight ? This photo certainly isn't at night, so I suspect it's the RIC as opposed to the RUC.  :)
