Pack Horse, Ashton Old Road

This odd collection of buildings is unmistakably an old boozer as you travel down Ashton Old Road into town, as the PACK HORSE sign remains.  Until recently it was a Holt's boozer and before that, Greenall Whitley's.

These 1960s and 1970s photos show the Pack Horse as a Groves & Whitnall house on the corner of Louisa Street.  These days the old Pack House is in use as a variety of tumbledown foreign shops and businesses.
