Crown, North Kent Street, Collyhurst, 1930. (c) Bob Potts .
The Crown on North Kent Street, Collyhurst was known locally as "Old Jane's Place", after one of the longer-serving landladies of its 1863-1929 life as an Empress Brewery house. North Kent Street was just parallel to Rochdale Road and off Collyhurst Street, and was lost to 1960s redevelopments to be replaced approximately by the west part of Thornton Street North (which contains the recently lost Sparrow estate pub on the eastern stretch).
