in the early 1900s on the London Metropolitan Archives 'Collage' website.

You'll find several photographs of nos 270-278, at the north end of the road near the bridge, which were demolished to make way for County Hall
. Not number 231, but it will give you an idea of what your great-grandfather's shop might have been like. The row includes a 'Dining & Tea Room' for example!
Rather impressive horse-drawn traffic jam in one photograph.
