Robin Hood, Queens Road

Robin Hood, Queens Road, Harpurhey. (c) Manchester Local Image Collection. Click here to view full image [1].

Pictured here in 1958, the Robin Hood was a quite grand-looking Cornbrook house in the flat iron style.  As we pass through the years, this Harpurhey boozer on the corner of Scropton Street and Queens Road begins to get more tatty, as in 1971.  The Robin Hood is pictured here in 1981 as a Bass house  (that's the still-serving Milan in the background) and just three years later it closed, having stood here since 1875 [2].  The final picture in 1984 is a sad sight as dereliction kicked in, and the Robin Hood was pulled down soon after.
