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 .

Days long gone.

The following photo was given to us by Mike Thelwell.
The photo was taken circa 1959 and I believe it was taken on Shepley Street/John Shepley Street in Hyde.

Hi W.L.,
It is a Bedford CA van (1952-1969).
The Dormobile was a conversion based on the CA.

Thanks, boys, I remember those awful sliding doors which, if you had a faulty catch, would open whilst you were on the move!
