The Stag is shown above and in 1971 at the archives on the corner of Sedon Street and Philips Park Road.  The photograph of the Stag was taken by A. Dawson from here at the Manchester Local Studies Collection, and adheres to their policy of allowing not-for-profit sites to display a limited number of their images in low resolution.

Sedon Street is long-gone but what remains of Philips Park Road will be familiar to anyone who's ever took a cab from the city centre to City's ground in Bradford.  The road runs up from Ancoats to the mini athletics stadium, but in the past, before the stadium and Bradford Colliery, it continued all the way over to Forge Lane, what is now Alan Turing Way, as shown below.
