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 .

Daniel Adamsons Staff Photo 1947

The following was sent via email by David Stafford.

Over to David....

"Hi all
I have been loaned a photograph from my brother Jeff.
It’s a picture of part of the personal employees at Daniel Adamson’s DukinfIeld September 1947.
The pictures measures 37 inches X 10 inches so I have had to scan it in four parts.
I know it’s not a direct picture of Hyde but with the works being on the boundary of Hyde and DukinfIeld
it employed many local peoples so they maybe family or relative on the photo with the residents of Hyde.
Each section can be enlarged for you to clearly see the faces of the employees."

Many thanks to David and, of course, Jeff for the loan of the photo.

Unfortunately, it isn't possible to make the faces any bigger on the blog but if anyone would like a larger size let us know and I'll see what can be done.
