Possibly Carman

Carman/Charman/Carrier/Carter/Cartman
Driver of (horse-drawn) vehicles for transporting goods. Carmen were often employed by railway companies for local deliveries and collections of goods and parcels. Modern day van driver. A Carter typically drove a light two wheeled carriage. Also sometimes someone who drove horse-drawn trams was called a Carman.

Given the job titles, I would hazard a guess that the address is 4 West Dock Avenue.

West Dock Avenue is a roadway in Kingston Upon Hull:

Like forum member, Maureene, I think that the occupation reads 'Carman'.
