Openshaw Inn, Ashton Old Road

Former location of Openshaw Inn, Ashton Old Road, Openshaw. (c) Google 2012. View Larger Map.

The Openshaw Inn with its multi-arched frontage is shown at the archive in the grimy 1960s on Ashton Old Road, on the corner of Mitchell Street on the border of Beswick and Openshaw.  The near corner on which the 'football accountant' and account book manufacturers stood is the lost Ensign Street, which used to pass from the Old Road to Kay Street behind.  In a more recent photo from the 1970s, the Openshaw Inn has had a lick of paint, its Chesters sign signage added, and its neighbour demolished.  An advertising hoarding and office marks the spot of the old Openshaw Inn.
