    Thanks, Steve.
    It was a bit of a learning curve for me, too.
    I love doing research and coming up with something.

    This 1967 pic shows part of the building between the Scala and The Vines, but I have nothing showing the whole thing.

    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.

    Was it the story to do with some spirits?

    Nah it was to do with a jewel thief who escaped from the Adelphi to the Vines hotel via a rope or something.

    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.

    Lime Street.
    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"?

    Pic' courtesy of C.E. Kelly.

    Well done you you, you terrier you.

    What is the Neo-Classical pillared building in the distance? and why two S's in 'Jacobss'?

    This could run-and-run.

    That's St.George's hall,a pretty good example,dont you think? (and still there!) Don't know about the S's,though!

    The store owner's name was Jacobs. So the shop was Jacobs's. Just like Lewis's and Rushworth and Dreaper's.

    I have come across the possessive apostrophe, dear Chris. For a time I thought I could see it under one of the windows, maybe not though.
