Railway, Stockport Road

Railway, Stockport Road, Levenshulme, 1993. (c) Alan Winfield with permission.

The Railway was a big corner pub on Stockport Road near Levenshulme Station that's been converted to a solicitor's office. Shown below in 1905 as an Empress Brewery house, it underwent significant rebuilding in later years.

Shown in 1935 from the same angle as the top view, in 1965 from along Albert Street (the Union in the background), by the 1970s the Railway was a Chesters house, which then passed to Whitbread.

Alan Winfield visited the Railway in 1993 when it was Whitbread keg-only.  The below view from Albert Street reveals the rear part of the closed Railway which still looks very pub-like.
