Benevolent Buildings 1834

On the corner of Vernon Street and Market Street lie the Benevolent Buildings built in 1834.

I only noticed the sign in the wall very recently. Part of the building is now a private art gallery while on the corner is a chandlers.

I was pleased to see that they had cut a space in the wooden cladding so as not to obscure the old sign.

I know nothing about its history.

You can see a close-up view on Hyde Daily Photo and a full colour version of this photograph on Geograph.
