Carousel in the Rain

On the last Friday before Christmas, a butcher's van is set up between the carousel and the White Lion. The carousel has operated on Hyde Market for over 100 years and will be retained when the market is extensively renovated in 2012.

More about the renovations on Hyde DP Xtra.


  1. A young «Louis» would have braved the rain to ride on one of the little cars on this carousel!

  2. I agree, lots of colors there!

  3. When I was young they were always called 'roundabouts' and it's only comparatively recently that they've been known as 'carousels'. The term 'carousel' always reminds me of the musical of the same name, which included what is now the famous anthem of Liverpool Football Club, 'You'll Never Walk Alone' - unlike the two people walking either side of the carousel in this photo.
