Frankham family

Hi there, I am the great grand daughter of John and Elizabeth Frankham. They lived in Waltham Abbey. Elizabeth Frankham was a publican of a Hotel and the census states John was a newsagent. I think one of my relatives in in this photo. I am wondering if anyone would have information about my family.

Did this pawn shop move across the road when the original was demolished? I thought I remembered it opposite Marshalls
