Roebuck, Lower Moss Lane, Hulme, 1957. (c) Bob Potts.
The Roebuck was a Groves & Whitnall house on Lower Moss Lane in Hulme, pictured about in 1957. It was at No.138 and lasted from 1867-1963 . The Roebuck was on the corner of the lost Cedar Street and Lower Moss Lane, about midway between City Road and Stretford Road. So the former location of the old Roebuck is roughly where Ribston Street is today. Only a short northern stretch of Lower Moss Lane off Chester Road, and a southern stretch of Upper Moss Lane (which is confusingly south of Lower Moss Lane) off Stretford Road, remain today.
