Pic 5: The building in the centre, with the chequered brickwork, looks like the Crown Vaults pub, but someone who knows the area better may confirm.

Edit: I checked the Crown Vaults pub and it does have similar brick-work, but is in the wrong position (just off Scotland Road).
The building at the far right of your picture looks quite distinctive.

You beat me to it Mand. For years thereafter stood a sign saying the site of the Goat's Head, as like the Rotunda, it was used as a landmark even though it was no longer there.
