Sun, Quay Street

Former location of the Sun, Quay Street, Salford. (c) googlemaps.

Not to be confused with the better known and more substantial Quay Street of Manchester, this is a short street near the Lowry Hotel just over the River Irwell into Salford.  In the 1800s it linked Worsley Street to Chapel Street and still does according to googlemaps, although the railway has long since cut across the top end of Quay Street.  On the left hand side, about halfway up Quay Street was the Sun, a tiny pub just the width of one terraced house, so you can imagine inside may have been a small front vault (i.e. in the front room) and a lounge to the rear (in the kitchen) which looked like it extended out to the yard area a touch [1].  The Delinio offices under the railway arches roughly mark the location of the Sun (though its address is listed as the adjacent and parallel Yorkshire Street).
