|© Wessex Film and Sound Archive, AV966/30 - the Victoria Pavilion, Ilfracombe|
It turns out the building is the Victoria Pavilion. It was built in the 1920s but in 1994 the decision was made that the costs to continue repairing it were too high and the building was demolished and replaced with the Landmark Theatre. I used various online sources to verify the identification of the building and gather information on it but I would never have found any of this without the help from our followers on Twitter. Or I should correct that, I might have found it, if I had been able to track down a book of old photographs of Ilfracombe but there just isn't that kind of time to devote to identifying one building so the use of social media such as Twitter are invaluable in this respect.
