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 .

Programme from Hyde United

Following on from the post about Hyde United the day before yesterday, here is a match programme from a game between Hyde United and Winsford United in 1958. 

I wonder what the score was?

I love the old adverts that you find on the old programmes.
I also like the simple telephone number, Hyde 30. 
So much easier to remember than todays long mobile numbers !!

Old buildings, old streets, old characters, old work friends, and old school friends, where did they all go. I stood looking up at the town hall this morning, looking at the change in brick colour of the original building and the top section built to house the clock. What a magnificent structure, what changes the town hall's seen. The new market place is not a patch on the old cobbled market where the town fair was held. Most of us just don't take it all in until its far too late. Get out into the town, walk around its old street's and think of what gems we've lost since 1945.
