Tipping Street is lost beneath the Mancunian Way and with it, the Corporation Inn. It was on the corner of the lost New York Street (renamed Hoyle Street) and straddled Egerton Street. This photo from the 1956 shows a wonderful close-up, with a sign offering Amber ale in bottles. This from the same year photo shows how the streets around the Corporation were pulled down before the pub was - another case of the pub being spared by thirsty demolition workers? Doubt it, as four years later it was owned by Groves & Whitnall, as seen in this 1960 shot. Note the unusual Hoyle Street sign.

The old location of the Corporation is this corner of Hoyle Street just off the Mancunian Way. It's not clear when the Corporation Inn was lost but it may have coincided with the building of the inner ring road, the A57(M) in 1963, which swallowed up Tipping Street and would have isolated the pub from the housing north of Ardwick Green.
