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 .

Eastern Bazaar part 1

I have recently been very lucky in acquiring a book from 1900.
It is the official handbook of a Bazaar that was held  at the Mechanics Hall in Hyde on behalf of the Hyde Wesleyan Methodist Church on Norfolk Street.

Makes fascinating reading !

Below are the first lot of excerpts from it !
