Tower / Hope Cottage Inn, Broad Street

Tower, Broad Street, Salford, 1951. (c) Neil Richardson [1].

Originally the Hope Cottage Inn, this beerhouse opened in the 1860s opposite Pendleton Church on Broad Street about half a dozen doors along from the Horse & Jockey.  By the 1890s it had been renamed the Tower Inn.  Shortly after, Walkers & Homfray bought the Tower and this tiny boozer closed, after having passed to Wilsons, in 1971 [1].
