Just over the River Irwell into Salford, Wood Street was parallel to Salford's Quay Street where the Sun was. In fact Wood Street is still shown on googlemaps despite being now covered by the Lowry Hotel complex. However, its pub, the White Lion which was in the middle of a row of terraced houses taking up the width of two properties, is long gone. The recess in the building shown on the left, below, marks the direction of Wood Street and the White Lion was on the right where the building comes across .
