Hi Moddsey,

Thanks for posting. It's Dragon, Lodge, 32 Lugard Road. A pic for comparison is this one dated 1924, but could be anytime in the early 1920's according to the poster.

The 1924 pic shows scaffolding around the chimney nearest the camera. By the 1950's that chimney had been removed as seen here (the building furthest from camera).

I'm wondering if the scaffolding in the 1920's pic shows the start of the chimney removal work, but it can't be if that date and the 1930 date for your pic are both correct. How confident are you of the 1930's date? Could it predate the 1920's pic? 

Thanks. Given the 1924 photo, I have amended mine to 1925. I note the access road does not look like fully completed in the 1924 photo.
