Here is a photo of St Marys School in Newton, taken around 1923.
It was sent to us by Colin Critchlow.
I like the way the teacher is keeping her beady eye on the class :)
Many thanks Colin. Much appreciated. :)
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 .
