Rose & Crown, Clarendon Street

Rose & Crown, Clarendon Street, Hulme, 1912. (c) Bob Potts [1].

Shown 100 years ago in Bob Potts' first book (above [1]), 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 [2] and closed in 1934 [1], 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.
