I think 'The Stanley' is hiding in the shadows of the photo, behind the car, perhaps?.
From old maps, I reckon that it was 25 yards to the east from the end of the Stanley St/Borough Rd (aka Victoria Rd) junction.

Good find though. Needs adding to the pubs index.

Rather strangely, I think the Stanley Pub was in the corner of the Stanley Arms Hotel building. They are recorded seperately on the 1871 cencus, and the first time I have a street number recorded for them is 1902. They had different heads of household or licencee recorded for each premise at the same time. They had different drinks licences, one as a hotel and one as a Pub. It was some time later that they became one and the same. Or it could be due to discrepencies in the trade directories...

Mr. Maurice Thomas was the manager of the Joint City and Midland Bank. Mr. John Greenwell became manager in the 1930s. Among the other businesses in this part of the road were the fish and chip shop run by Archie Chippendale, Arthur White the stationer and Joe Scott, the butcher. Bob Leenam was landlord of the 'Stanley Arms' hotel and in the 1920s Reg Prichard took over, followed by Jim Horsley. The hotel once had a balcony and next door was 'Belle Vue', with steps leading up to the front door. The hotel once boasted a bowling green.

After looking at some maps 1915 and 1950s
I'm still trying to get my head around the 1st pic of post as being the Stanley Arms 76 Borough Road
Anyone know the name of the PH at top of 1915 map by Tabor st
Shame my numbered 1950s stops short

My cousin Harry Gilmore and wife Grace managed the Stanley from late 60's to closure sometime in the late 80's - Harry died about 2000

I, too think it closed in 1986. My dad has a photo of himself, partner and land-lord taken on the night it closed. I'm sure the date on the back is 1986.
