Nelson Inn, Upper Jackson Street, Hulme, 1960s. (c) Bob Potts .
This Chesters house opened in 1859  and lasted over a hundred years until it was demolished in 1970  as pat of the Hulme regeneration efforts of the time. Bizarrely, as the Nelson Inn was being knocked down, the oddball city planners had commissioned a new pub to open next door, the infamous estate pub, the Sir Henry Royce. The newly-erected grim Hulme Crescents can be seen behind the old and new pubs on the newly-christened Chichester Road.
