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 .

Postcard from Hyde Park.

Here is a postcard of Hyde Park.
I've cropped the card and tried to enlarge the photos so as to get a bit more detail.

This one shows the dell in the woods complete with "castle top" bridge.

On the one above you can see the drinking water fountain in the background behind the paddling pool. This fountain used to stand on the corner of Hyde Market.

You did very well with this one Nancy.. I could of been at the pond by the look of things.. the bridge was always fun to be around... as were the 'castle topped'steps.. As a park should be a prefect place to pass ones free time, be it a hour or more.
