    My father was born in the residence (uppermost storey) of the Bank in the Market Square a few years after this photo was taken. His birth certificate says "Bank Chambers, Market Square, Hyde." The family were the resident caretaker/cleaners. They emigrated to Australia after WW1. When I visited Hyde in 2001 and again in 2006 I was amazed at how little the market area and buildings had changed from the old photos. The building is still a Bank (HSBC from memory.) Another relative (named Robinson) was the builder (contractor) of the Town Hall across the road. Love the site (plus Hyde daily photo.) Regards, Graeme. (Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.0
