Former site of the Three Pigeons, Cornell Street. (c) Google 2010. View Larger Map.
The Three Pigeons was just around the corner from the Cheshire Cheese on Oldham Road. It was a beerhouse from the 1840s to the 1870s. Its location was opposite Sanitary Street (since shortened to the less lavatorial Anita Street, at the behest of its residents), which back then was known as Primrose Street, opposite the Cornwall Arms.
