Telephone Box Isolated Again

As work continues on the renewal of Hyde Market, the telephone box on the corner of Market Street and Clarendon Street has been isolated behind the barriers again. Compare with the similar view two months previously.

Behind it flagstones have been extended to the road edge and the Sheffield stands removed as can seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

On the right, stopping at the heritage bus stop is a Stagecoach bus on the #344 Back Bower circular route, recently operated by Stotts who took on the route when previous operator Speedwells went bust.

This was on Saturday. Passing by on Monday workmen were laying tarmac down on the ground around the telephone box.

  1. Just from the angle of the telephone box, I'd say everything was disconnected during construction.

  2. We have very few pay phones here in the states, so I'm impressed.

  3. Probably paid for my the mobile phone companies ...

  4. No man is an island...but apparently the phone box can be! Interesting photographic essay you are providing of the construction as it progresses!

  5. There's certainly plenty of red to select from here. Nicely captured. It appears that the person in the wheel chair has quite an obstacle course to navigate.

  6. It was probably too heavy, they can't move it. ;)

  7. Great shot for RT2. Happy RT2!

    Mine's here.

  8. Captured beautifully! Have a nice day.

    Purrfect Pens for RT, come and see.

  9. Construction sites are difficult for everyone to navigate, and especially for those in wheelchairs.
    Hopefully it won't take long to get those barriers down.
    Have a wonderful day!
