Empress, Sloane Street

Sloane Street (Sedgeborough Road), Moss Side. (c) Mancky.

The Empress is shown at No.4 Sloane Street, Moss Side as a Wilsons house in 1971 and 1972.  In both these archive photographs, the building next door to the pub is sadly derelict, and it wasn't long after that the building and the Empress, along with the rest of Sloane Street, was pulled down.  The street was renamed Sedgeborough Road after redevelopments, as confirmed on the wonderful Mancky website, who discovered that Emmelline Pankhurst's was born here on Sloane Street.
