Goose Inn, Exchange Street

Former location of Goose Inn, St Anne's Square (Exchange Street). (c) googlemaps.

Today's Exchange Theatre on St Anne's Square is named after Exchange Street which used to connect St Anne's Square with Market Street in the 1700-1800s.  The Goose Inn stood near to the Dog Inn, opposite the Exchange Coffee House, part of the old Manchester Subscription Library at The Exchange on Market Street.  Like the Dog Inn, the Goose Inn faced onto a dangerous stretch of road where vehicles would endanger pedestrians ("Dangerous Corner"), so people would often hide in the doorway of the Goose Inn when a coach or carriage passed [1].
