You've posted this in the Monmouthshire board, so I take it that it has a connection with Monmouthshire or it might be there? Is that a clue?

HANK - - ONS?  :-\

I can’t think of a surname that would fit, and “Hank” not likely to be a forename in Wales.

There is a “Hankinson” on the 1911 Welsh census, but nothing to do with Auctions. There are quite a lot of people with this surname in the 1911 England census though.

Date wise, early 1920s as a guess, judging by some of the ladies hats and the rather impressive vehicle.

In some respects it isn't dissimilar to Hankinson's at Richmond Chambers in Bournemouth:

This is online as 'Hawkinsons' but it could be Hankinsons

Nice find Matthew. That photo looks to be taken from a slightly different angle. Similar date wise  I think.

^ta :)

The Western Gazette has a 1914 advert for 'Hankinson's Auction Mart, The Square, Bournemouth'

This postcard of The Square, Bournemouth shows part of the Auction Mart sign
