The Venue (Collyhurst)

I took this photo sometime late 1977 (I think). I had been away from Manchester for a few months and was passing the site of the Electric Circus which was being demolished so I took the photo as a memory of many great nights spent there but, as it shows the name being used was The Venue.

Can anyone confirm that this makes sense or has my memory finally started to go awol.

“I just found out that the original Electric Circus premises was re-named The Venue for a short lived outing in late 1978. I never went during this second period, but, according to Joy Div Central they played there in Nov '78
