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 .

Could the clock just be broke..ha! If I'm right I think this same thing happened on a couple of pictures from Enfield Street which me and my older brother were on..... his was taken 2-3 years before mine... Maybe it was the 'norm' to have them taken after the lunch time break... well spotted Jean.

Okay, I'll have a go, but my memory for faces-to-names is poor.

First photo (with my old mate Paul Cleary in it), I think the female teacher was called Miss Ruth* later Mrs Robinson*.

I'm a bit more confident with the second photo;
BR; Peter Del Giudice, Chris Sykes,3,4,Craig Charnock*,6,7,Chris Hancock.
R3: Geoff Longdon,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,
R2:1,2,3,Chris Hall*,Paul Cleary,Gary Raheem*,Leyland Woodhead,8,9
FR:1,Denise Pike,Helen Woods,4,Susan Davies,Michelle Pritt*,Gillian Teretza,Emily ?,9

I have a lot of names from that class whirring around in my head but I can't put them to the faces.
