Princess, Mauldeth Road West, Moss Side. (c) ManMates .
The Princess was a huge boozer sat on the main Princess Road into town from the motorways and southern Manchester. It was on the corner of of Mauldeth Road West opposite Hough End playing fields and was an away fan friendly pub in its later years. The oddly shaped and distinctly 1930s architecture of the Princess is seen here in 1959 and then a decade later in 1970 as a Whitbread house. Although it stood closed for a number of years, it was demolished quite recently - I'd guess that it coincided with MCFC's move away from the area in about 2003 - and has been replaced by new build flats.
