York Hotel, Renshaw Street

York Hotel, Renshaw Street, Hulme. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The York Hotel stood on the corner of Booth Street and Renshaw Street and is pictured above in 1961 in Bob Potts' highly-recommended book [1].  This spot is now the corner of Freeman Square and Epping Street (as Renshaw Street was renamed in the 1960s Hulme redevelopments), as Booth Street (West) doesn't quite reach this far west any more.  The York Hotel opened in 1849 as a Watson, Woodhead & Wagstaffe brewery house [2], passing to Walker & Homfray [1].  The photo suggests it was rebuilt in 1909 and it passed to Wilsons before closing in 1963 [1] for the aforementioned redevelopments.
