Shown here on a jolly girls' outing in the 1920s, the Sun Inn stood on the corner of Nutter Street and Phoebe Street, Ordsall, opening in the 1860s. It was owned by Cornbrook Brewery by the turn of the century, and before it closed in 1972 it had become a Bass house . The lower end of Phoebe Street where the Sun Inn once stood remains, although where today it starts to bend round to join Trafford Road, in the past it carried on due south to meet up with West Park Street.
