潮陽     - Chaoyang
汕頭店住永順 - Yomgshun Store in Shantou
囗足     - 囗zu (I can't decipher the 1st character)

Chaoyang is now a district name in Shandou city, Guandong, and was famous for its tinware and metal crafts. The area is rich in tin deposits. From the Song to the late Qing dynasty large-scale lead and tin mining was carried out here. There were a number of tinsmiths and tin ware workshops
in various towns in Chaoyang area during the late Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China.

With regards,
