Vine Inn, Broad Street, Salford. (c) Salford Pubs of the 70s at flickr .
The Vine in on the south side of Broad Street near Cross Lane opened in the 1830s, becoming an Empress Brewery beerhouse by the early 1900s, and they rebuilt it in 1903. Walkers of Warrington were the owners in the 1940s until it closed and was demolished in 1971 . The new flats and maisonettes were already springing up around this redeveloped part of Salford, by 1970. The old location of the Vine can be worked out from the new flats seen above in the 1970 photo. The Flemish Weaver estate boozer (a characterful "community pub" that we can't wait to visit) sits adjacent to where the old Vine once stood (you can just see it to the left, above - the building with the white stripe).
