Railway Hotel / Runcorn, Worsley & Wigan Boathouse, Deansgate

Former location of the Railway Hotel, Deansgate (c) Google 2010. View Larger Map.

Judging from this 1910 photo from the archives, the Railway Hotel stood here where nowadays the pedestrian steps up to the GMEX (edit: now 'Deansgate-Castlefield') tram stop are.  The second railway bridge seen in the 1910 photo is the one that used to cross Deansgate at Great Bridegwater Street for the old line into Central Station's good yard, the Great Northern Warehouse.  The 1849 map shows that his pub was previously called the mouthful, the Runcorn, Wigan & Worsley Boathouse and later on the Packet House Tavern under the stewardship of Samuel Hague [1].
