Callander and Forer

We are currently working our way through a collection of photographs of Maffra and surrounds from the late Ted Clark, and are stumped by this one. We do not know of a Callander and Forer store locally, and checking on Trove shows them at Dookie and Wangaratta.

We have really worked hard on it, but cannot read any words on the other shops.

This looks more like Wangaratta to us, but can anyone confirm it?

Late Note: Thanks to Jackie on the Rootsweb AUS-VIC-NORTHEAST mailing list - This is in Mary Street Dookie in 1906. The two men in suits with the boy to the left are Callander and Forer.
