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 .

Love the blog. I like the second pic, view from lodge lane.
I like how the houses look tiny in comparison to the Ashton Brothers building.

I agree - I like the way telephoto lenses can often make a well-known street or road look so unfamiliar.

I've noticed that. I took one of Stockport Road recently and it looked completely different.
