Devonshire, Stockport Road

Shown as a Wilsons house twice in 1970 and 1971 after a lick of paint, the Devonshire was a grand hotel on the corner of Devonshire Street and Stockport Road in Ardwick.  In the past it was also known as Tommy Brown's Music Hall [1], a Threlfall's house, and the Devonshire was called The Circus for a time before its demolition.

An evocative shot of the inside of the Devonshire, kindly supplied by Anne O'Keefe, shows it was a big and busy old pub.  The Devonshire was sadly knocked down at some point in the 1990s and has, rather ignominiously, been replaced with a McDonald's.
