Former site of George Inn, Medlock Street. (c) googlemaps.
Back up River Street from the old British Standard and where it meets Medlock Street was the George Inn, today a Premier Travel Inn. The 1844 map has the 1848 Slater's Directory on its rear which lists William Bromley as proprietor of the George Inn at 44 Medlock Street . Note the unfinished building in the right-distance - an eyesore which has stood skeletal for years now, a canvas for Manchester's grafitti artists and a reminder of the effect of the recession on Manchester's modern re-building programme.
