Excellent posts Quentin,and Dazza!The whole block is a bit of a mish-mash,looking at those aerial views! Architectural investigation should begin tonight,but possibly tomorrow!
This 1967 pic shows part of the building between the Scala and The Vines, but I have nothing showing the whole thing.

You take them for granted - until one day they're gone!
Well,I didn't actually make it,after "her indoors" suggested I phone the "Vines"!(had to settle for the "Bug",instead!) The manager told me that the doors to that part of the pub(to the left) was the entrance to the hotel,above,which hasn't been used for some time,but said they had planning permission,which implied some sort of activity,for this,in the future? She wasn't aware of any pub ever being next door,but being Irish,she probably wouldn't be that knowledgable of it's history,though she did know the place was named after the original owner,a Mr. Vines,and that they still posessed the building plans!She was quite amenable,though busy,so I thought I might get some pic's of the room layout,etc,in the future?
Nice one Steve.
I was going to mention the hotel part, it's mentioned in one of Tom Slemen's stories, but I didn't think it would be the answer so kept quiet.
I wouldn't give Satan a snowball's chance in hell against a woman's ego, man. He'd rule the Earth for a day. A week later we'd see Satan out cuttin' the lawn.
I remember it now. Book 14, story No. 42. It was tarzan.
His chimp - chee chee later went on to another pub in Mathew st and called it the planet of the 'Grapes'.
Ha,should have guessed old Tom would have solved/invented the mystery first!
Two postcards from my collection.
The previous Adelphi and the previous to 1907 Vines.
1876 is when this Adelphi was built - the postcard is c1902-05.
Card posted in 1927.
This is about the best view of the former Pavilion pub.
It's obvious that it was one building at some time.
Came across this pic' of the old Adelphi,which also shows a pub' next to it,which I guess, is the original"Vines" building,or is it,as it looks more like the style of the "Pavillion"?
