Man in the Moon, Scholes Street

Former location of Man in the Moon, Scholes Street (1). (c) googlemaps.

Scholes Street used to run parallel to Foundry Lane and Whittle Street, from Tib Street to meet Coop Street.  In the mid-1800s on the corner of Scholes Street and Coop Street (1 on the map) was the brilliantly named Man in the Moon (more than a century before "one small step for Man...") [1].  The Man in the Moon faced the huge Smithfield Market so would have been popular with traders and hawkers.  The site of the pub is now on the edge of that odd little Northern Quarter council estate.
