LRLH has discovered that a Thomas Firby is listed 1901

In 1895 Thomas Firby was at the Marcia Hotel, Accomb.
Mrs Georgina Firby, wife of Frederick was a beer retailer
at Brass Street, Manchester to at least 1911

The letters R & L are on the entrance doors
and the windows have a central rampant lion motif...
So it is fairly certain to be the RED LION...... but where?
The .........Inn is straight ahead.
The sign in the foreground says.. CAUTION - Drive slowly to avoid collision

Wines, Spirits, Beer and Tobacco at these premises.
The GLOBE INN
The GEORGE HOTEL
in what appears to be the market square?
