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 .

Hydes claim to fame ?

As I was looking through some photos of Hyde I was struck by the similarity of the Beatles famous Abbey Road Album cover with the one of Hyde Town Hall's zebra crossing..

Hydes very own Abbey Road photo from 1968.

Maybe the Beatles got their inspiration from this picture as they didn't release their album until 1969 ! ;)

This makes me wonder about how many musicians and singers from Hyde have made it on to Radio, TV, or the 'Big Stage'. I can think of a few who I've seen on TV... and then there's Brass Bands.. that did good well before our time.
