Where was this Off License?

This old photo shows an OFF LICENSE situated somewhere in Church Street, Deptford. Any clues as to where it was located.

The location of the off license in church street was past saint pauls church on the left hand side, past some houses
There was a boot menders, then some more houses, after that there was the off license.
This information was given to me by my mother Sophie.
This was about 1953-54.

Thanks for that info was it just before the Oxford Arms/Birds Nest on the same side or on the opposite side?

This photo is also on the Dead Pubs website where they state it was at 165 Church Street - guess that would make it opposite side of the road to Birds Nest. They also have another photo of it on that site: http://deadpubs.co.uk/KentPubs/Deptford/ChurchStreet165.shtml

The off license was indeed at 165 Church Street, on the west side, at the north end, next to a Unitarian Baptist Church, about thirty yards from Creek Road (therefore the opposite end and opposite side to the Oxford Arms/Crows Nest). According to the 1914 Post Office directory it was owned by Charles Stacey, beer retailer.
