New Boars Head, Withy Grove

Seeing as the Old Boars Head was demolished in the 1920s for the building of the Withy Grove newspaper empire, the New Boars Head will probably have opened around the same time across the road on the corner of Corporation Street.

Seen here in 1920s and later in the 1970s, the New Boars Head, finished life as a Tetley's house (as seen below and in Manchester in the '70s [1]) was also demolished along with the rest of this side of Withy Grove to make way for the Arndale Centre.
