Here is a Philco postcard view of Portobello Promenade and beach.

The shop sing on the dark background (in the tall buildings) is Miss A Steedman, 32-33 Promenade.  This dates the photograph to between 1910 and 1921.  

The low building at the right hand end of this block (centre of post card) is 29 Promenade, a photographic studio from 1900 until 1922

Other studios were located between 20a and 26a Promenade.  I believe that these may have been low buildings slightly further back from the promenade beyond the light 4-storey tenement block on this  postcard.
