These picture all show trams around the Hyde area.... can anyone put a name to the roads they are on? One seems to be on it's way into Hyde... where as the others have a Mottram sign on show.
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 .
