Ellesmere, Warwick Street

Former Ellesmere, Warwick Street. (c) Mick Burke / Frank Heaton [1].

The Ellesmere was a gambling club on Warwick Street, on the site of the old Lever Street bus station.  The Ancoats Lad book contains a picture of the club, a fine looking old two-storey Victorian building which was demolished in 1985 for the bus station, which now, 25 years later, is no longer in use having been superseded by Shudehill Interchange (2013 UPDATE: it's now been cleared and built on).  Still facing the old site of the Ellesmere is the building that used to house the Prince of Wales betting club.
