Cornwall Arms, Cornell Street

Opposite the Three Pigeons and around the corner from the Cheshire Cheese, the Cornwall Arms was originally on the corner of Primrose Street from the 1850s to 1880s [1].  When the slums were cleared at the turn of the century, Sanitary Street was built, with the Cornwall Arms was now on the corner of Cornell Street.  This street was renamed to Anita Street following objections from residents many years ago, and is one of a small number of streets in old Ancoats that are now pedestrianised with sought-after properties, being so close to the city centre.  The shot below is looking up Anita Street towards Victoria Square (and would have once been looking towards the Dublin Castle).
