California Vaults, Great Ancoats Street

Former location of California Vaults, Great Ancoats Street.(c) googlemaps.

The California Vaults was a short-lived beerhouse on "The Lane" (Great Ancoats Street).  It opened in 1850, probably at the same time as its next door neighbour, the Commercial Inn, but was a linen draper's shop by 1958 [1].  It was third property in from Meadow Street (now Millbank Street) which puts its former location at the second house in with with the arched windows in this Piccadilly Basin block.
