In an attempt to make the image easier to see, it was enhanced using Denoise [Block PCA] feature of the G’MIC (GREYC's Magic for Image Computing) plugin for Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program). Jérôme Boulanger is the author of the feature.
Due to the difficulty of seeing features in the c. 1830 sketch, I created a simulation of the Theatre's portico. TJS.
British history Online discusses an amateurish drawing http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=46127#s5 of the Adelphi dated c. 1825, but the title over the theatre would indicate c. 1830 or later. Copyright restrictions prevent its being digitized. 1
In 1825, J. T. G. Rodwell died and was succeeded by his brother. George Rodwell and Jones sold the theatre in August to Frederick Yates and Daniel Terry who made changes to the building. The portico was screened by Doric columns with slender shafts standing on square pedestals. The front of the Adelphi showed it to be four stories high but only two windows wide. It was faced in stucco and surmounted by a triangular pediment and a chimney.
The Hampshire Hog was in place at 410 Strand at least by 1822 to the right side of the Adelphi Theatre. They purchased insurance from the Sun Fire Office in 1822: "MS 11936/493/987872 30 January 1822 Insured: William Robert Burgess 107 Strand Other property or occupiers: the Hampshire Hog 410 Strand (victualler)." 2.
The shop on the left shows up in two of the sketches. The shop is referenced in the 1823 Kent's London Directory 3 and in 1836, referring to a special quicksilver level:
