In a 1930s gazetteer of south Lancs, Penny Street, Salford , postal district 6, runs approx northwest  between Clarendon Road and Slater Street - nearest landmark Langworthy Park,  a block or two to the west.  [Next are Crown and Florin Streets - any snobbery there???]
The Manchester boundary is about a half mile to the east, but I think Salford for postal purposes was 'Manchester 6' - much to the Salfordians' dissgust!

Thank you, :)

Is clarendon street & slater street still there (because on todays map they are far to the west no where near Langworthy park).

sorry what do you mean by: next are crown & florins street, any snobbery there?

Sorry but I don't have a current map of the area. 
My little joke was about the different values of coins - crown, florin and penny.
