Shadows across Hyde Market
Mature trees cast their shadows across the cleared Northern half of Hyde Market last Sunday afternoon in a never to be repeated view.
The original renovation plans included removal of all the trees but after protests at least some of the more mature trees are to be retained.
On the left can be seen the greengrocer's "Strawberry Gardens" with solicitor's offices above. To the right is the White Lion public house, William Hill's betting shop (bookies) and the Santander (former Abbey) Bank. Far right is the children's carousel (roundabout) in front of the Clarendon shopping centre.
Compare with the scene in the opposite direction in heavy rain the previous day as shown on Hyde DP Xtra.
Since Sunday this part of the market has been cordoned off as renewal work gets under way. The small trees in front of the White Lion have already gone.
Yesterday shadows of different kind were cast over Hyde Market but of these I do not wish comment here.
This is a contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday.
