Harry Rutherford's Festival of Britain Mural
The two shops on the left after the corner one were the Central Premises of Hyde Equitable Co-op Society. I also remember shopping for shoes at Garbetts (on the left hand corner ) in the 1960's
Barry in Oz. There was a great chip shop on the left hand side about 5 doors up from Manchester Rd. You had to walk upstairs to the Cafe. I used to walk there from Floweryfield school at lunchtime because I hated the school dinners.
Another evocative view of an area that I lived in during the 1950s. I cannot remember the names of all the shops but there was Mrs.May's herbalists; Stafford's Barbers Shop; Cheetham's Newsagents; Moscrops on both sides; Zona's(?)greengrocers; Brine's Butchers and several shops that I can recall what they sold but not their names. Handforth's was indeed at the bottom of Newton Street, the last building on the left before Ashton Brothers wall.
