Wellington Inn, Moston Lane

On the corner of the wonderfully-named Capstan Street and Moston Lane, the Wellington Inn was a tiny but fully-licensed house, despite its beerhouse-size seen in 1959.  Capstan Street was formerly Charles Street, and I've no idea why it was renamed after a (i) famous cigarette brand or (ii) a nautical rotating machine.
