Sabre, Taylorson Street

The Sabre, Taylorson Street, Ordsall, 1978 (right). (c) Salford Pubs of the 70s.

Another of Salford's lost estate pubs, the Sabre was a short-lived Joseph Holt's house on Taylorson Street (behind Ordsall Hall) in Ordsall.  It was built by Holt's in 1978 and lasted only 15 years as it was closed in 1993 and demolished the following year [1].  The above image shows the rear of the Sabre (centre right) and is taken from this 2004 edition of LifeTimesLink where it was the "Mystery photo [2]."  In the following edition, the mystery was cleared up by Salford Housing Officer, Paul Wilson: "The brick building in the background is The Sabre pub, and the tower block in the distance is Sunnyside Court... the pub has gone and sadly so has Sunnyside [3]."
