Description

Anthony Burgess's home for some years from the late twenties was his stepmother's off-licence at 261 Moss Lane East, in the district of Moss Side in Manchester. The off-licence was opposite the Temperance Billiard Hall and down the road from the New Church (Swedenborgian). The latter two structures are still standing, although they are under new management. Burgess would either walk or take the tram to school in Rusholme.
