GREYHOUND INN, London Road

GREYHOUND INN
53  (later 119)  London Road
*
The original Greyhound Inn, before the fire, and below, the one that replaced it.
The Greyhound stands at the corner of Salmon Street, off London Road.
If you look at the building on the left in Salmon Street, that's the "JERRY LOBBY INN"
Now, not a lot of (Preston) people know that! Have a look at the page for that Inn, and
see how obvious it really is.
