Apollo, Heywood Street

The Apollo was a Joseph Holt's estate pub of Cheetham Hill at 79 Heywood Street on the corner with Brinsworth Drive.  This is not far from the Waterloo on Waterloo Road, which has recently reopened we're glad to hear (info from @MCRTaxiTours).  Sadly, the Apollo has been closed for many years and has been put to other use.

At least the Apollo is some sort of community facilty, even if it is as the strictly booze-free Al-Falah Islamic Centre.  These gents appear to be loitering outside waiting for it to open... much the same way as the old  Holt's drinkers of Cheetham Hill would have done when it was the Apollo.
