Here is a fine postcard by F. W. Smith of Newton, Hyde showing Market Place,with Brownsons store (later Woolworths store) on the left. The Albion pub is next door to the store.The Queens Pub is just visible in the distance.
I'm unsure of the date so any help with this would be welcomed.
Almost the same view from the 1960's.
Brownsons had become Woolworths. You can see the tower in the middle of the postcard.
The White Lion pub is on the extreme left.
The view today courtesy of Google street view.
