Otter's Post Office and grocery store in the floods

This photograph shows Quorn Cross during some heavy flooding. Otter's took over from North's as the Post Office and as a grocery store. Dates are uncertain, although it is known that Mr Otter was in charge in the early 1940's, then his assistant Mr Smith took over (possibly about 1947) - and was there until the mid 1950's. Can anyone help with more exact dates? This picture may have been taken during the particularly bad floods during 1932 or 1933.
