Help The Poor Struggler

Picture source:

The Help The Poor Struggler was situated on Manchester Road. This pub closed c.1990. Its most famous publican was Albert Pierrepoint, the hangman.
A brief customer, my father knew Albert Pierrepoint and in fact when he was in the Prison Service he had helped Pierrepoint with a hanging at Leicester Prison.
