George Wain, an art teacher at Hyde Grammar School, was also an amateur film maker.
During WWll he was commissioned by "The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents" to make road safety films for school children.
This is his film of his trip to Sutton in Surrey, and London, and his return home to Dowson Road and his family during the summer of 1942.
Another a war-time relic can seen on Hyde Daily Photo.

This is the Cheshire Cheese on Stockport Road in Gee Cross. The photograph was taken by Janet Howie in 1982.
It is not to be confused with the Cheshire Cheese in Newton, nor the Cheshire Cheese in Broadbottom, featured today on Hyde DP Xtra.
Janet also sent me scans of two much earlier photographs (dates unknown) from her collection. As can be seen here, the left hand side of the building was originally a separate grocery shop.
See how it looks in 2010 on Hyde Daily Photo.
