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 .

Market Square 2

Photobucket

Photobucket

We recently showed a view of how the Market Square looked in the 1970s, and we asked if anyone had more views from back then..... Joyce has kindly sent in these two and thinks there are one or two more and maybe a postcard from this time which she has but can't yet find.  Thank you Joyce... here's hoping they turn up.

I love the top one with "Fella's" clothes shop on it. It was a really trendy shop :)
