Sheffield stands on Market Street


Last week I showed you the isolated phone-box on Hyde Market.

Today's photograph was taken a week later (last Saturday) looking in the opposite direction down Market Street. The cycle-racks (Sheffield stands, I think they are termed) which were on the other side of the phonebox have been relocated here.

The week after follow up photograph to my post about the men at work on Clarendon Street can be found on Hyde DP Xtra.

This post is a contribution to Ruby Tuesday.

  1. Good splashes of colour for Ruby Tuesday- I had no idea they were called Sheffield stands- to do with the city of manufacture I suppose? - steel-

    1. According to Wikipedia "The origin of the racks was when the frugal citizens of Sheffield had to decide what to do with some old gas piping. Local cyclists suggested the cycle rack idea and two simple bends later, and a little concrete in the ground, the rack was born."
