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 .

A postcard from home.

A postcard of Market Street.

hydemarketstno4-1

Postcard published by Grenville of Stockport and postally used in 1919.

It hasn't changed an awful lot in almost 100 years. It's still instantly recognisable.
Anyone any ideas what the large sign is on the side of the building on Croft Street?

Perhaps Paul can shed some light on the premises? It looks a bit like a pub on the Market Street side.
