    yes, the 1930s Burtons building was junction of London Road and St George's Road.

    Think the photographer was stood on New Kent Road looking towards St George's Road.

    Pub on the left was the Elephant and Castle - earlier photo (from different angle) here

    Post-war large scale OS map here (although some buildings had been demolished in the war by then)
