I remember Corey's Scrapyard,  it was on the corner  Raby Street /  Criccieth Street,  late George Street,  in Moss Side.  The entrance was on Criccieth Street, I lived at No 89.  Mr. Corey always had a Jaguer Car parked outside.   On the Manchester City Council site there are photographs of the Street, now demolished.

I remember the pub Lenny. and the scrapyard next to it. Do you remember the closed police station on the other side of the road?

Re Corry's used few times I used the one on the picture.  They were straight business people a lot of plumbers and such used them I'm not sure if they had bigger yard somewhere else the picture is of MossLane East there is a triangle divide on MossLane East coming towards Princess Rd I think on Barton/Westwood st. nr the Caribbean club .
