Address was given as "29, The Peak" at RBL 169 on the 1924 map of The Peak.
Completion date given at: http://gwulo.com/node/17110
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:
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.
I guess the old building was demolished sometime between the two photos, so appx 1955.
