FreddyHeadey Lyr Add/Req: The Manchester Canal (29) RE: Lyr Add/Req: The Manchester Canal 22 Jan 20


*To go on about Bailey Bridge\Albert Bridge,,,
only because I was in Manchester today and saw a painting of it, 1912, titled "Bailey Bridge" by a local artist but captioned by the gallery "Bailey Bridge, more correctly known as Albert Bridge..."

And I see it has its own wiki page saying
"The new bridge was opened on 26 August 1844. The first vehicle to cross was a donkey cart, from Manchester.
... Albert Bridge replaced an earlier structure, New Bailey Bridge."

The Wilsons Brewery was on Monsall Road but the continuation of it, crossing the Rochdale Canal, is called Grimshaw Lane. That would have had a nice northern\Lancastrian industrial ring to it though I suppose it wouldn't have been particularly Mancunian.
