Old Golden Lion, Deansgate

Former location of Old Golden Lion, Deansgate. (c) googlemaps.

This building clad in scaffolding and sheeting straddles Quay Street and Atkinson Street on Deansgate.  In the mid-1800s the Old Golden Lion sat two doors up from the Royal Oak and next door but one to Cupid's Alley, which was a more romantic name for the modern day Atkinson Street [1].  Beneath the scaffolding are several businesses; the  Old Golden Lion sat just about where the Mobden Sharps is today next to the Tantune Deli & Coffee House.
