Bull's Head, Chester Road

This old Handley's Brewery and Threlfalls house closed in 1993, and like the Turville (far right, above), Cornbrook Inn, Railway and many, many more around the city centre end of Chester Road, appears lost forever.  Thankfully at least the sign of the Bull's Head Hotel is a reminder of the former function of this Tel Signs business premises.

The Bulls Head was famous locally for a time as Frank Yonco's pub in the 1960s when the likes of Karl Denver would pop in for a drink [1].  A few doors along Chester Road towards Old Trafford is the still standing and until very recently, sometimes open Hydes pub, the Hope Inn (as of April 2011 occupied by squatters [2]), outside which the below shot is taken.
