Shakespeare Inn, Mount Street, Chorlton-on-Medlock. (c) Bob Potts .
The Shakespeare Inn stood at 26 Mount Street, between Grosvenor Street and Brook Street in Chorlton-on-Medlock, opposite the Bridge & Crescent. It was a Peter Walker & Sons house, shown here in 1959 advertising Walkers Falstaff Ales, closing as an Empress Brewery boozer in 1964 . Note the difference in surroundings between the 1930s (above) and the 1959 photo - regeneration of the area had already started, and the site of the old Shakespeare was lost under the Mancunian Way.
