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 .

I always thought that the Brickies was on Travis street. You learn something every day !

The address of "Iceland" is Travis street but the store map http://www.shopping-time.co.uk/SK14/Hyde/Iceland-Hyde-301-Travis-Street,21067.html#vmap puts it on the other side of Union Street - but that same map appears to indicate that the name change to Reynold Street starts from Beeley Street not Crook Street.

To the left of the Bricklayers as you face it is a gateway leading to the parking area at the side of the building. On one of the gateposts is a sign saying:

CHOMOK BHAVAN
26
REYNOLD STREET

Google Earth seems to agree with Gerald that Travis Street starts at Beeley Street, but if that were so I would have thought that Iceland would actually be on Reynold Street. The telephone directory shows Iceland to be on Travis Street which appears to suggest that Travis Street starts where the road bends opposite the Iceland car park.

'Chomok Bhavan', by the way, seems to be Hindi - is there anyone out there who can tell us what it means, or is it just someone's name?

I've looked at a tithe map from 1836 and it appears that a building, where the Bricklayers building was, was at the end of Reynold Street before Travis Street was built.
That appears on maps from around 1875.
So, The Bricklayers WAS on Reynold Street and The Ritz/Iceland buildings stood on Travis Street ! :)
