Hyde Grammar School 1877


Now housing a sheet-metal factory, in 1877 this building on the corner of Henry Street and Edna Street was originally Hyde Grammar School.

Very interesting...
maybe this school was transfered to a big building then.

A one room schoolhouse perhaps, where multiple ages were taught by one teacher. Amazing to even think about trying that now.

I went into this building to order some door grills about 10 years ago... in the office was the masters desk... still in use. I am sure there was other furniture from the school. I bet there's many walked past this and never noticed it Gerald...
I would also have thought that at that time a full time grammer school was looked on very well... not many would have been able to go there... the mills would have been calling and the extry wage would be needed.

This reminds of many schools in smaller communities in Norway in the "old day" - multiple ages were taught by one teacher. Indeed, I fancy they still exist here and there.

Takes you back somehow we have lost so much and learnt so little

Reuse rather than tear down and rebuild seems to be the way of life in Hyde. It also says a lot about the original builders of the buildings.
