Fox Hotel, Victoria Street

Fox Hotel, Old Shambles. (c)

The Fox Hotel was near to Sinclair's Osyter Bar on Victoria Street on the corner of the Old Shambles.  It is depicted above in the centre left.  You can just make out the 'FOX' on the side and the building labelled '1' is the old fish market; the building numbered 2 is the back of Sinclair's.  Of course, Sinclair's and its neighbour, the Wellington, have since been moved twice; once upwards, due to the creation of the Arndale Centre, and the other, a couple of decades later, 300 yards away thanks to the IRA in 1996.
