A clue to where the photo was found in the 1st place would help possibly.

Did it belong to a family member or just random?

Was it with other photos which may hold a clue?

What era roughly (if known)?

Looks like a picture of two palm trees below "Lounge Bar"

Afraid it is a completely random, car boot sale find.

Where? Do you have a place in mind?

It's not a very wide pavement is it - a side street rather than a main road?

Well spotted Groom, I hadn't thought of that.  See, we're getting closer already  ;D ;D

On the other hand, the road looks to be wide enough to have a white line in the middle - unless it's part of some other kind of marking.

Difficult to tell because of the state of the photo there.

It still seems odd to take a photo like that, the "doorman" doesn't seem to know it was being taken.

I doubt he was a doorman - he looks too casual, doesn't look as though he's "on duty".

Is AD97 the year in which this building was built? And 90 (above the door) the road number?

"Off sales" - is that a Scottish term? or used in other parts of the UK as well?

I'm not great at fashion stuff but is that a 1940s outfit?

Good point.   Off Sales  will probably help   to give a likely year.   Later  "Off Licence"    would be the  common term used.

I am going to guess   at circa 1950.
