Frascati, Oxford Road

Frascati, Oxford Road, 1951. (c) Bob Potts [1].

Frascati was an Italian pub-cum-restaurant (referred to in some records as Frascati's Restaurant) on Oxford Road.  The pub was a Walker & Homfray then Wilsons Brewery house and closed in 1965 having formerly been known as Cima's Restaurant [1].  It's shown here at the archives in 1956 (the hung sign says "Bar & Lounge").  Frascati was a grand looking pub on the corner of Rosamond Street East.  Both the buildings and the street have been lost; the route is still there but pedestrianised down the site of the Manchester Aquatics Centre (out of shot to the left).
