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 .

Kiddies Christmas Outing 1952

Here are a couple more photos from Tony Downend.
The first one shows the Kiddies Christmas Outing from Newton Moor Working Mens Club in 1952.
The second one is a comparative shot taken in 2010.

I love the three open backed doubledecker buses waiting to take the kids!



Thanks Tony :)
