This distinctive old pub is on the corner of Rochdale Road and Osborne Street in Collyhurst about a mile up Rochdale Road from town. Seen in busier times in 1958, 1976 (I think as a Wilsons house), three times here in 1981, it was also a Banks's house as seen in 1986. The Osborne has been renovated in recent years since a side wall collapse  and could be earmarked for conversion to flats.
