BRITANNIA INN, 53 Adelphi Street

BRITANNIA INN / HOTEL
53  Adelphi Street and
115 (later 88) Victoria Street.
*
The "Britannia" can just be seen to the left of the arch legs.
The "York Castle" is directly above the chair, right, and the
"Victoria " is to the right of the right leg of the arch.

That site says the image is taken looking towards the town centre.
I disagree; I think it's taken looking away from the town centre, and towards Plungington Road.
