Carousel on Hyde Market

The children's carousel on Hyde Market is a family-run concern that has been around of about a hundred years. On this day there had been a program of events on Hyde Civic Square in the run-up to the switching on of the Christmas Lights.
Cooke's Children's Carousel
The roundabout on Hyde Market was manufactured by Halsteads of Sowerby Bridge in 1897. It was established on Hyde Market in 1919 by John William (Jack) Greaves. In the 1920s he passed it to his daughter Lily and her husband Bill Cooke. It has now been in the Cooke family for three generations.
