Clifford Hotel, Clifford Street

Clifford Hotel, Clifford Street, 1960s. (c) Bob Potts [1].

Clifford Street used to run off Oxford Road, exactly where the brutally-modern University bridge briefly takes the main road into darkness through a tunnel.  It ran parallel to Booth Street East to meet up with Upper Brook Street.  Just a few doors down Clifford Street from Oxford Road on the right hand side, as shown below, stood the Clifford Hotel.  The Clifford was a Threlfalls then Chesters house which closed in 1968 [1].  The late '60s was a good time for Manchester, although not particularly for the pubs around here - the university expansions saw off a huge number of Chorlton-on-Medlock and Hulme boozers.
