Pineapple, Crowborough / Leaf Street

Pineapple, Crowborough Street, Greenheys, Chorlton-on-Medlock.

The Pineapple stood on Crowborough Street, formerly Leaf Street, in Greenheys, the southern part of Chorlton-on-Medlock.  The Pineapple opened at No.14 Leaf Street in 1858 and lasted until 1967, closing as as Taylor's Eagle Brewery house [1].  It was on the corner of Leaf Street and unusually-named Delhi Grove, off Pigott Street and parallel to Greenheys Lane [2].  This location of pretty much where Aquarius Street and Bronte Street meet today.

  1. I think my Gran (Rose Wilson) was landlady of the Pineapple in the 1940s. Could anyone confirm this?
