Skywatch Friday: Looking past the Crown Pole

A view from the South end of Hyde Market looking down Corporation Street.

Immediately on the left is the Midland Bank. Across Market Street on the corner of Corporation Street is the Royal Bank of Scotland. Further down Corporation Street on the opposite side of the road can be glimpsed the domes of the Jamia Mosque. Nearer is the Town Hall from which a flag is flying.

In the foreground on the left is a board showing details of the plans to revamp the Market ground. Behind it lies the Crown Pole erected in 2002 to commemorate the Queen's golden jubilee. The pole is to be re-sited but the plans do not say where. The telephone box is to be retained.

More about the revamp on Hyde DP Xtra.

  2. Nice contrast between the luminous sky and the dark streetscape.

  3. this is really nice...most of my favorite pictures are captured looking down the road!

  4. Hope they don't insist on making it "new" looking...

  5. Incredible shot. Glad they are keeping the phone box.
