Former location of Red Lion, Claremont Road, Rusholme. (c) Google 2012. View Larger Map.
This long lost Wilsons house was on Claremont Road in between Heald Place and Victory Street at the Rusholme end, just down from the Lord Lyon and its Victory Street neighbours, the Gardeners and Osborne. Seen in here in 1966 and here in two similar photos from 1971, the Red Lion was on the corner of Jay Street, a street now lost to a 5-aside football pitch. Not sure how long the Red Lion lasted for, but it's a rare pub in that it was lost long before MCFC left Maine Road and the area. Do any blues remember this one?
