Hyde Name Origins.

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 .

Adverts from St.Marys Church Magazine No.1

Photobucket

I showed this church magazine from St. Mary's a few days back, it dates from September 1948. I thought I'd show you a few of the adverts... all of which relate to Victoria Street, Newton.

When I first moved up Newton around 28 years ago this shop was still open for business

I remember the Butchers also Tom, but non of the rest.

Feel guilty now for using the supermarket! It's amazing that despite there being more of us around, there are less shops overall around here, just fewer larger stores.

The Home killed beef, mutton & lamb sounds good, as does Groceries from Grimshaws at no 38, with a dose of Quality & Civility thrown in - instead of being asked if I'm interested in double glazing in Morrisons foyer.
