Lovely old postcard of Hyde !
I love the old "drop down" postcards. They are much nicer than the ones available in the shops today.
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 .
