Midland Arms, Temperance Street

Midland Arms, Temperance Street, Ardwick. (c) Hulme, C.on-M, All Saints, Ardwick FaceBook.

The Midland Arms stood opposite the Imperial Inn on the ironically-named Temperance Street in Ardwick.  Most likely named after the railway which dominates the street scene, two small children can be seen playing outside the Midland in this photo.

By taking the exact position on Temperance street many decades after the above photo was taken, the sad state of this corner of Ardwick can be seen.  Industrial yards and derelict land have taken the place of the old Imperial Inn and the Midland Arms.
