A Dinosaur in Hyde


On Easter Saturday some dinosaurs visited Hyde and roamed around town. The first arrived on the Civic Square about 10.45am. More came later and by mid-afternoon the place was crowded with people enjoying the market festivities.

I've been posting a daily photo of Hyde now for nine years with only a few days missing. Five years ago I put Hyde Daily Photo Vol. 1 (2006-2011) into archive mode. Now I am putting Vol. 2 into archive mode.

I shall continue to post photos of Hyde on Hyde Xtra but not necessarily every day. That blog was originally started by a spammer who copied many of the City Daily Photo Blogs. After a concerted effort the blog was closed down and I took over the URL in 2009 as a place to post extra photographs. If you have previously linked to us on your side-bar or elsewhere please update the link to follow Hyde Xtra.

I will still be posting periodically on all my other blogs and uploading photos to the Geograph Britain & Ireland project where you can contact me via my profile page.

This post is a contribution to Our World Tuesday.

  3. What were the dinosaurs doing in Hyde? Had they escaped from the local Museum or do you have your own Jurassic Park?

  9. That's quite a way to end a blog, a dinosaur roaming around. These photos of our places we call home, are hopefully some use to future generations.
