Thanks goes to Viki Davis for thESE picture which shows the demolition of another Hyde pub.
The original pub
The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .
