Hi Emma,

It exists on the 1939 register,under Manchester CB.

It's near to Tuesday and Wednesday Street.  ;D

I believe it may have changed it's name to New Allen Street.

I have an old Manchester Street Atlas, bought when we moved to Cheadle Hulme back in the late '60's. 

There is an entry in the index for Thursday Street, M10 and underneath that is "New Allen Street" - New Allen Street is how it appears on the map, parallel with Oldham Road.

Tuesday Street and Wednesday Street, same street atlas book, have "Linacre Street" as an alternative name.

I always thought the italics meant it wasn't named on the map but it was off the street/road in italics,but I stand to be corrected.

Ahhh!  so perhaps, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Streets are not shown on the map, but are "off" New Allen Street and Linacre Street.     :-\

"Note:  A street name, followed by the name of another street in italics, does not appear on the map, but will be found adjoining or near the latter"

Thursday St found fame in Alan Garner's book 'Elidor'. It was the location of a portal to another world (missing ancestors anyone?)  :)

Elidor was published in 1965 and described the area round Thursday St as derelict and mostly abandoned, so Garner would be accurately describing the slum/bomb site clearances of the 1960s in Manchester.

The link that Bumble B posted was pretty much spot on - you just need to up the map scale:
