Coomassie Hotel, Florin Street, Hanky Park, Salford. (c) Neil Richardson .
This oddly named boozer* opened in 1874 when the licence from the Cross Keys, Broughton Road, was transferred to a shop on the corner of Coomassie Street and Florin Street. The Sun Brewery owned the beerhouse and they unsuccessfully applied to rebuild it as a fully-licensed house a year after opening, also failing to gain a spirits licence in 1873. In the early 1900s the Coomassie was bought by Threlfalls Brewery and it survived until 1968 when it fell to the Hanky Park compulsory purchase order . Hanky Park was obliterated during redevelopment in the '60s and '70s so it's hard to work out where Florin Street used to run on modern maps but I guess the Coomassie was too far from where Edgehill Close is today.
