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 .

In class in the 1920's

This photograph is a wonderful insight into school classrooms in the 1920s. The school shown is Godley School on High Street.
It was sent to us, with some others, from Stephen Burton who tells us that his mums older stepbrother is in the photo and sadly he passed away not many years later.

Such a clear photo,I'm not sure a photo on here will do it justice in the resolution the blog allows. So, I will put a thumbnail up as well so you can see it as it's meant to be seen.
Just click the thumbnail to see the bigger picture in photobucket then click the photo in photobucket to get it at 100%. 

Believe me, it's worth it!

Many thanks, Stephen. I'm looking forward to posting the rest soon ! :)

Fantastic picture... well done done Nancy on the link it really is better to see all the details... I would have liked to have seen all the stuff in the cupboards at the back. My dad was born in 1912 so this would be the kind of schooling he would have had...
