Albion Inn, Pinder Street

Albion Inn, Pinder Street, Hulme. (c) Bob Potts [1]

The Albion Inn was on the corner of Raglan Street and Pinder Street in the south of Hulme.  It is pictured above in 1961 as a Wilsons Brewery house [1] and at No.22 was the third of three beerhouses in a row on this stretch of Pinder Street - the George Inn at No.18, the Moss Side Inn at No.20.  The latter closed in 1906 but the George and Albion lasted until the late 1960s [1].  The Albion Inn was roughly at the bottom end of today's Peregrine Street, around the back of ASDA, in this vastly changed latest incarnation of Hulme.
