White Horse, Stretford Road

Two archive photos from the 1970s of the White Horse on Stretford Road in Hulme show a Tetley's estate pub with distinctive brick and wooden panelled façade.  The photos shown here are from the Hulme Festival, thanks to the brilliant Manchester District Music Archive [1], including one of local group, The Inca Babies playing in front of the White Horse.

Having been built in 1970 to replace the original White Horse, the pub was built to serve the Hulme Crescents, located as it was between Charles Barry Crescent and John Nash Crescent, next to the Zion Centre.  The new White Horse lasted just 25 years before being demolished in 1995 as the area underwent another regeneration.
