An article about the types of goods in a deli.
The Journal (Adelaide) 31st Jan1920 http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/213321792 (3rd column)
Concerning Chic
.... Another shop that roused my admiration is called "Ye Savorie," and devoted to everything in the way of delicatessen, such as caviare, Indian pickles, and luxuries of that kind. Garlic sausages for sandwiches, great pink hams, and innumerable attractive edibles fill up a shining white-painted window, into which an immacuately white clad shop assistant dashes, at intervals, a long silverer harpoon, that reaches dainties in the very farthest corner of the window. There is nothing chic about garlic sausages, but the whole establishment is chic in its own line.

Hi Iwccc,

I notice you are online at the moment (green light lit up), perhaps you could confirm if the information posted in these replies is helpful, or are you looking for the owners/operators before and after Charles Woolnough ?

Hi, Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions regarding a Deli shop at 11 The Strand,Dee Why. I am actually seeking to find information about James Dargavel Copland who I am led to believe rented the shop after Albert Charles Woolnough.   James would have gone there in the 1930/40's and stayed on at that shop until he retired in the 1950's.  Can't seem to find a reference anywhere to the shop being "No.11"
I would love to find a photograph of the shop also.  Tried various ideas but so far no answer. I have managed to get an aerial shot of Dee Why Beach and can just make out The Strand and possible placement of No.11. 
thanks again everyone for helping

Thanks Hanes tealu  -  Am I right....is the word "Woods" the name of the person wanting help.
If this is so that means that James Dargavel Copland would not have been in the shop until some time after 1937.

Thanks Jamjar.  Shame I. can't track down a photo of the building in the 1930's.  Very helpful
