This is (was) the meeting place for all the creatives around Ardwick Green. If you needed a photographer or stylist then lunchtime this place was full of them. The big studios went one by one and the clientele went with them.
The River Pub, just down the road from the bustle of Ardwick. A sorry sight situated on Palmerston street with the River Medlock at its back. It began its licensing in 1860.
