George & Dragon, Red Bank

Former location of George & Dragon, Red Bank. (c) Google 2014. View Larger Map.

On the corner of Cliff Street (now lost) and Red Bank on the way down into town was the George & Dragon.  It was just north of the bridge that passes the railway over Foundry Street (now Faber Street), so on the far right in the above shot where the a block of 'Green Quarter' flats now stand.  Note the triple landmarks in the distance - Urbis (now the National Football Museum), the Manchester Wheel (now moved to Piccadilly Gardens) and the Beetham Tower.  This 1966 photo shows the corner of Cliff Street from Red Bank, so it that building is probably the old George & Dragon - you can see the remnants of what may be the sign above the former corner entrance.
