I had a quick search and I think the photographers is still there.

I looked up F Bookbinder and sons and they were Bakers owned by Elkie Brooks’, the singer, family.

Looks to be the Whit Walks on both pictures.

The Bookbinder shop is possibly Cheetham Hill area - there is a bus stop for 59 bus which is on that route.

It is quite possibly the Whit walks from St.Chad's at the bottom of Cheetham Hill Rd.
There was also a thriving Jewish community there,in fact that was the first area to be settled by Jewish immigrants,being so near Victoria Station.
The time seems to be the 1950's.
