Try www.artus-familyhistory.com/source/Early%20Maps.html  they have lots of old maps of Manchester, you may have to look at an earlier or later map than 1903 and if you can't find what you are looking for you can always e-mail them.

If you look on the 1930s map, and section 2B you'll find it there.

The 1:500 Town Plan shows all the detail of the houses.

It seems to come up as 2c Manchester Salford 1930, but the road is in the large red square numbered 2B.  If you go along Oldham Road following it upwards to the right, where it starts at 2B you'll see Portugal St running parallel to Oldham Road and that leads to Prussia St which in itself leads to Oldham Road.  I would add an image, but I guess it's not allowed.
