Star Inn, Duke Street

Star Inn, Duke Street, Hulme, 1912. (c) Bob Potts [1].

On the corner of Devonshire Street and Duke Street, the Star Inn opened in 1841 and passed to Cronshaws and the Peter Walker & Son brewery of Warrington before closure in 1914 [1,2].  The Star was at No.101 Duke Street, which was off Stretford Road and later renamed Downside Street.  Princess Road has since replaced this street with the Hulme Arch marking the spot where it once ran north of Stretford Road.
