Skywatch Friday: A clear view of Corporation Street

I took this a few weeks ago following the end of the refurbishment work on Hyde Market.

There is a clear view from the market ground across the road and down Corporation Street.

See how it looked in January 2010 under a blanket of snow; in August 2009 with the sun shining, and in 2002 before and after the erection of the Crown Pole which was removed in January 2012 at the start of the renewal work.

Since I took this photograph a row of retractable metal bollards have been placed across the entrance so the view is already not as clear as seen here.

For Skywatch Friday.


  1. Beautiful area!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  2. That looks like a great urban area....I love unique towns that don't look just like every other strip mall. This definitely qualifies...nice blue sky too .

  3. I have a feeling the Crown post looked nicer that retractable bollards.

  4. What a lovely picture! I like pretending like I'm right there!
