Victoria Hotel, City Road

Yet another old pub of Hulme to have been lost to the Mancunian Way, the Victoria Hotel was on the northern side of City Road between Crown Street and Great Jackson Street.  These streets all survive today in part, albeit some with slightly altered names - City Road is now City Road East-turning-into-Jackson Crescent, and Great Jackson Street is now Great Jackson Street-turning-into-Jackson Crescent.  The map below tries to explain that.

When the Victoria Hotel closed in 1964 it had been a Manchester Brewery, Walker & Homfray and finally Wilsons house.  The exact spot of the old Victoria Hotel was just south of where the curved pedestrian walkway is over the Mancunian Way.
