The marvelously-named Malcolm was a Wilsons house on the corner of Widnes Street and the south side of Ashton Old Road in Openshaw. Shown here in 1970, the Malcolm was just over the road and a few doors down from the Vulcan, but there was another pub, the Staff of Life, between the two.

Although much of Ashton Old Road and surroundings have been swept away, the old Malcolm still stands on the corner of Widnes Street having been turned into a house. The old Wilsons whitewash is gone but the distinctive window arrangements and cut-away corner entrance are unmistakable.
