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 .

Nice to see the membership book as survived so well. I have recently discovered that my Grandfather Thomas Edward Wigley ran this club and at another time Hyde United Social Club, I'm sure there was another he was involved with... I will find out about that one. I wonder what the bar prices were Nancy...

After mentioning the bar prices I had to have a look ... In 1984 it was 66p a pint, and back in 1964 it was 8p a pint.

When Harold Wilson was elected in 1974

Suzi Quatro was at No.1 with Devil Gate Drive.
Best film. The Godfather, Part II
FA Cup Winners... Liverpool 3, Newcastle United 0
Petrol was 11.4p for leaded per litre.
Beer was 15p for a pint of bitter.
Cigarettes 30p for a pack of 20
Bread was 14.2p for a white sliced loaf.
Milk was 5p a pint...

Nearly right Tom. I don't think litres had been inflicted upon us in 1974 so petrol would have been 51.8p per gallon, which MOST people would have thought of as 10 shillings and 4 pence per gallon - and SOME of us do still mentally convert prices in such a way!
