Coronation of George VI - Tulleys Stores

Further to picture #1732, Tulleys Stores now has its grocery van parked in front of the shop.
The vehicle has been renamed “Coronation Spirit” and decorated with advertising posters of two whisky distillers, Black and White and Johnnie Walker.
A Large Version is available. Is that a glimpse of Mr Quick in his tradesman’s coat at the rear of the van?

The left window has, I assume, a replica of St Edward’s crown, the original of which is used for the coronation of British monarchs.
Somewhat in contrast to the crown, in the right window is a display of Bird’s food products celebrating the firm’s centenary in 1937. An early example of “product placement” perhaps?
Another picture of the prize-winning shop can be seen at picture #117.
