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 .

Around Clarendon Place

A couple of old shots here.
The first one is a photo of Clarendon Place looking in the direction down towards the Town Hall.

The old fingerpost sign post used to stand in front of the Queens . The large building to the left is the Reform Club and the pub facing it on the right of the picture is the Jolly Carter

The second photo is of the bottom part of Thomas Street looking over the houses to Clarendon Place. The Roof with glass panels in is now home to the "Fizz" shop.The Multistory car Park now stands on this spot.

Great you spotted the Fizz Shop here Nancy, The first picture shows Hyde town centre at it's best... what a shame these older buildings are no longer there.. When you think that the Old Reform Club building stood near to where 'Gabbatts Farm' is now... that's not improvement, that's bloody vandalism.
I think the second picture shows there was a need to redevelop some areas... but isn't it a great image with all those chimneys...
