Thomas Street was in three sections : Mount Street to Union Street then Union Street to Beeley Street and Beeley Street to Platt Street.

Thomas Street Working Men's Institute.(Middle section)
On the middle section stood The Working Men's Institute - Hyde was one of the first places to build a public institute to the Chartist cause .It was opened in September 1838, and sermons were preached in the morning and afternoon by the Reverend Joseph Raynor Stephens. This later became St Thomas's School. This building saw action a second time when it was used as a headquarter for 'A' Company of the 36th Cheshire Regiment of the Home Guard in the last war.
Why this building wasn't preserved is anyone's guess. I believe that there should be a sign on Union street where the Working Men's Institute once stood commemorating this building so that the Chartist connection with this part of Hyde is never forgotten. Chartist House now stands on the Mount Street - Union Street section of Thomas Street
The bottom part of Thomas street still stands, technically although it isn't road signed anymore.. It's the road leading into the multi-storey car park from Union Street. It used to run past the side of the gymnasium belonging to Hyde Lads Club. Both Club and Multi Story Car Park are now gone.
