Anyone know what happened to the building that housed Manticore? 

 

I assume it's been demolished.

Yes,it's been demolished.But before Manticore the theatre looked like this:

ABC Walham Green 392 North End Road,Fulham,London.

Interesting that Page looks reasonably healthy, esp. in comparison to his ghastly and emaciated appearance in America just a few months later.  

That's because he adopted a no solid foods diet on the first leg of that tour. Everything went through a blender he kept in his hotel room.

I'm sure that didn't help, but he looked like shit through all legs of the tour.  And didn't he supposedly eat ribs at some place in Chicago before he got "sick"?

I recall reading an interview with Jimmy in Circus Magazine during the 1977  tour, "Jimmy Page Files His Report".  Jimmy said he was living on banana daquiris and protein powder.
