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 .

R.I.P. The Globe

 Just thought I'd post these few photos to show people who remember The Globe Public House what it is looking like since it closed its doors to the public.
It's such a shame to see another once great pub now being used for flats.

How times change. In the third photo, looking up Ridling Lane, on the left, you can see the front door of what used to be a sweet shop many years ago. My friend Tony Angelone's family owned it for a while, but I cannot remeber what it was called before they took it over. The chippie used to be Chapmans, him and his wife used to argue all the time which was fun to watch, and George & Kath had a newsagents on the right hand side of Ridling Lane. I used to deliver papers for them. Then you had Harolds shop on the corner of Ridling Lane & Lumn Road. So many shops closing the doors. So many memories!

Very sad sight to see... The time I had a 'quick' drink drink in there I always found it to be a friendly place... the function room upstairs was well used, I'd been to many a party up there.
Lets hope this dark cloud has a silver lining and all it's old customers now drink in the Gardeners.

I remember Harold's on the right corner of ridling lane, we always new Harold as sticky's because he always had a cigarette stuck to his lips when serving people, I used to take bets for him over to Jimmy Seftons bookies on the corner opposite the globe pub he used to give a couple of fags. Great man great days.Barry

It was called Hiltons shop, Graham. They had the best "penny tray" in the world. I used to go in every day after coming out of Leigh Street Juniors. Ahh.. memories.

I was very disappointed recently when I asked Jane to pick me up some Penny white mice.... they've shrunk terribly and did not taste at all like they used to... :O) I did buy some Cinder Toffee from the shop in the market all... now that did taste good and took me back many years.. :O)
