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 .

Fletcher Millers 1952

Today we have some rather excellent photos from Tony Downend...They show a Fletcher Millers Christmas Party.

They are of more innocent times when a works Christmas Party meant a Fancy Dress Ball not a pub crawl !!

I love them ! :)
