Spread Eagle, Rochdale Road, Collyhurst, 1947. (c) Bob Potts .
The Spread Eagle closed a couple of years later in 1973 due a compulsory purchase order having been licensed since 1828. The pub had a short period as the Yorkshire House around 1838 and in the 19th century there was a brewhouse attached . Limer Street is long-lost to new developments off the west side of Rochdale Road, but the old street's little community is shown celebrating the Queen's Coronation in 1953 .
