Hyde Name Origins.

The old bus station -

Bus

Interesting shot of the old bus station pre M67 motorway! I remember the old bus shelters being very draughty on a winters day! No seats or doors - makes todays bus station look like comparative luxury ! Notice the Astoria Bingo Hall peeping over the shelter to the right hand side.
