This has a list of Blanche Eardley’s novel, might give you a hint. Her name appears on right of window

Thankyou very much. I did search for the author and found she wrote from 1900-1920. Then I found a similiar picture online to mine advertising the same short story and that newsagent was in existence from 1902-1914. So I have a 10 year period. unfortunately I can't find when that story was written, although there is plenty online about all her other books.

I did a search and found this link which doesn't add much more to what you already know, but does confirm what you already know.

Not sure if there's anything new there except for the court case with the author.
