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 .

1930 Advertisements

Here's a couple of advertisements from The Reporter Pictorial Review in Pictures of 1930.

I can't find out anything about H. Rigby & Sons but Cotton Street, where the Workshop and Warehouse was, ran between Russell Street and Mottram Street, just about where Clark Way passes behind Tameside Caravans.
.
Arcoleine Lubricants didn't last for long after this advert was originally printed:

The ARCOLEINE LUBRICANTS Limited.
Extraordinary Resolution (pursuant to the Companies
Act, 1929 sections 117 and 225), passed
the 1st day of November, 1934.
AT an Extraordinary General Meeting of the
Members of the above named Company, duly
convened, and held at the Philanthropic Hall,
Hamnett Street, Hyde, on the 1st day of November,
1934, the following Extraordinary Resolution
was duly passed : —
"That it has been proved to the satisfaction of
this Meeting that the Company cannot, by reason
of its liabilities, continue its business, and that it
is advisable to wind up the same, and accordingly
that the Company be wound up voluntarily."
At a subsequent Meeting of the creditors of
the said Company, duly convened, and held at the
same place on the same day, Mr. William Henry
Kelsall, of 81, Dale Street, Liverpool was
appointed Liquidator for the purposes of such
winding-up and a Committee of Inspection was
appointed.

I think old advertisments give you a real history of a place.
