Looking up Clarendon Street

This is looking up Clarendon Street from one of the footbridges over the M67.

You can see a #330 bus about to enter the Bus Station.

Standing out further up the street is the Art Deco facade of the building that I think was originally a cinema but in more recent years has housed an indoor market or supermarket.

Clarendon Street should not be confused with Clarendon Road, Clarendon Place nor the Clarendon Shopping Centre, which are all separate places.

Hello Gerald, thanks for popping by my blog and I must say that you have a rather nice blog yourself!

Kind regards

Hi Gerald, you must have read my mind! I was talking to my dad on Tuesday after my comment on your old Hyde Blog about the houses near the dye works. I asked him if the old bingo place was still there, and it is, it is the first building on the left of your picture, I can't remember what he said it was these days.

The bingo hall is still a bingo hall Lizzy, It was one of many picture houses that Hyde as had in its time. The Surper Market as it was known up the road on the left now called Qualitity Save, again that was a picture house and for a time had afternoon bingo sesions upstairs, if you won you got tokens to spend on the stalls.
I love this New Bus Station, I have seen 4 bus stations in Hyde and this one is the best.

Further to my last commemts, the bingo hall on the left was called La Scale and the one on the right was called the Hippodrome. At La Scala, I believe, they used to turn the heating up towards the interval in the hope that people would buy more ice cream.

Good day Gerald. You've taken me for a little walk across the footbridge today. Was it on the way to see Old Wom?
