I've set the demolition date to 1955.

It looks to have been beyond repair, as in this 1954 photo it can be seen top-left, and is a roofless, window-less shell:

1954 29 & 31 Lugard Road

Then in the top-right corner of this 1956 photo there is scaffolding up, probably the construction site for the current #29 which was completed in 1957.

1956 31 Lugard Road

I guess the old building was demolished sometime between the two photos, so appx 1955.
