Shown 100 years ago in Bob Potts' first book (above ), the Rose & Crown was a Walker's of Warrington & Burton Ales house on the corner of Wilmott Street and Clarendon Street. This quite distinctive boozer was established in 1867  and closed in 1934 , and is pictured at the archives in 1933. Today the meeting of Wilmott Street and Clarendon Street - and the Rose & Crown - is directly beneath the Mancunian Way.
