Former Great Western, Sedgeborough Road, Moss Side. (c) Mancky .
Also known as Duncan's Bar before it closed a few years ago, the Great Western was an old Groves & Whitnall house, seen in the 1960s and 1969 on Sloane Street, Moss Side. When the area was being developed, for example like here in 1974, the Great Western survived by Sloane Street was renamed Sedgeborough Street. Quite why the council decided to do this, especially when Sloane Street was famous for being the birthplace of sufragette Emiline Pankhurst , is anyone's guess. In the 1990s the Great Western sounded like a rum old boozer when Alan Winfield visited the Websters house , but these days the building has been put to use as business premises.
