    No, this is a real person promoting themselves or their own business; the cunt just hires a service that builds a list of people who might be interested in the cunt's business and does the grunt-work of having the cunt's account follow everybody on that list.

    Shills are covertly working for somebody else. These days, if you see a random stranger following you on social media, they're often real and promoting themselves.

    "Fake followers" is taken, so is there a term for real people who just hired some firm to subscribe them to other people's social media accounts in the hope that some of those people will notice, take a look and then buy their book/porn-photos/motivational-course ?

    Other than Cunts.

    The confectioners is a little more photogenic but "The old sweet shop" at number 60 would have been pathetically easy to find in Google search or Maps.

    If you picked the right square, there's a clue in the picture which should make it trivial to find the building.

    It seems like a lot of info, not quite sure which bit of it could really be said to be a clue.

    Should I have picked a square named after a footballer or a cricketer? Which this wasn't.

    New:

    What was once a fine old row of shops, now all converted to residential use. The one in the foreground was an ironmongers, beyond it you can see a haberdashers and a confectioners. To its left, out of shot, was a general store whose name still shows above the entrance.

    This square is at the centre of one of London's oldest housing estates. To stretch out the columns theme, one of the very first residents on the square was the then editor of the Times newspaper.
