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 .

It surprises me at times just what can be bought on E-bay, all 3 of these are on sale at the moment, all 3 are pages from magazines and as I've watched them before they will sell for a pound or two.

Can see now why women aren't keen on blokes washing the pots...

Pound or two?? It's the prices they charge for Hyde postcards that amazes me. I've even seen a really beautiful card of St John's, Godley, going for £2.99 and it's one of the tear-offs from the Willow Wood calendar! My huge collection must be worth a fortune.

Dave B, funniest comment I've seen on here in a while... good humour always gets my vote.

One has to wonder if people actually do pay those advertised prices - I suspect the majority make no sales.

Ha! Gerald... I've been daft enough once or twice... I once paid £4.99 for what I thought was a pamphlet on S.H.M.D. Tramways... it turned out to be a few pages from a book... I think the only useful information I gleamed was a date I used on a post. I'm sure it will not be the last bad buy I make..

I bought a lot from Paul when he'd done his Hyde book but that was a long time ago now. I have paid over the odds for cards that I've really liked of places that mean something to me. I once saw a postcard of Market Street offered at £25. Needless to say I didn't buy it!
