Cavendish Hotel, Cavendish Street

Seen here in 1970, the Cavendish Hotel has been recently refurbished for student accommodation, as seen on the Manchester History website [1].  A couple of years later the Cavendish had apparently closed and may have been used as an army training centre as this 1973 photo seems to suggest.  This Cavendish is not to be confused with the old Wilsons pub, the Cavendish, on the other side of the road, which was also known as Clynes Wine Bar in the 1950s and '60s.  The place looked suspiciously closed for good when we passed it on a recent pub crawl.
