This big Greenall Whitley boozer was closed and demolished in 1976 having previously been a Groves & Whitnall house before and after a rebuild [1,2]. The St James Hotel was on the corner of Smith Street and Markendale Street, an area which has more recently been swallowed up by the tram line running through Ordsall.
