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 .

Walls delivery van

The following post includes a couple of rather charming photos of a Walls delivery van !
They were sent to us by Ken Charles ! 
Over to Ken....
"I had some  great memories at Walls .
We had to phone orders in every day for next day delivery  by 1pm or we would not get a delivery.
I must say the company was very professional in its business in those days you would get approached by other companies to go and work for them as  all Walls staff were thought a lot of by other companies".

I bet I wasn't the only kid to do the "W" sign to Walls van drivers when they drove past in the street. I was always chuffed when they did it back ! :D

Many Thanks Ken !
Much appreciated!
