Another view of Hyde Town Hall.
Unsure of the date on this one but think it is the turn of the 1900's.
I see the fountain which now stands in Hyde Park is on there.
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 .
