I highly recommend a trip to Waterstones - head to the local interest section and you'll find a whole load of old maps (exactly like the one above in fact) for sale. Only a couple of quid too - I got three covering Sherwood in the north, the city centre and the Meadows in the south. All dated around 1900.
Some interesting history on the back too.
More info: http://www.alangodfreymaps.co.uk

You can spend hours matching them up to Google Earth and noting the differences. Biggest differences being back to back housing clearance, the loss of the Great Central Railway and of course the hideous Maid Marian Way that smashed its way through so much of the city.

I have been sent a scan of a 1920s street map of Nottingham. If anyone wants one I'll be happy to e-mail a copy to you.

NB: the map has been divided up into nine files and each is in the region of 800kb. I don't want to muck-up your in box.

Hi Johnr, welcom to the forum.

Thoresby Street was at the junction of Pennyfoot Street and Manvers Street running north/south.

See bottom right hand corner of the map at the top of the page.

Fascinating! able to see the route of the old pits line from cinderhill etc, the route of the Leen and canals, the old "main road" Whitemoor Avenue, and the Suburban Railway going between 2 Lunatic Asylums!

I mentioned earlier the Nottingham Suburban Railway going between the 2 "lunatic asylums" (as stated on map). Just shows you what you miss as was looking at the map again earlier today and this time noticed the line is named as "Great Northern Railway" Now I know the NSR was "backed" by The GNR, in fact run by them (their rolling stock, locos etc) but can find no evidence of them taking it over officially or renaming of The NSR? I have also seen it identified by the name Nottingham Suburban Railway on other maps. A further question (and possibly a more accurate dating of the map) arises as on Jan 1st 1923 The Great Northern Railway name, along with The NSR and GCR ceased to exist as absorbed into The LNER, Nottingham's other 2 railways The Midland and London North Western becoming part of The LMS.

Hi Margaret,

Welcome to Nottstalgia,

Are you sure it is not "Bertram Street, Nottingham", not "Bartram Street"?

Bertram Street was close to Trent Bridge.

What is the name of the brewery in Basford on the map...i can't make it out! It's on First (?) St and begins with M! Is it Marstons? It was later part of Shipstones i know.

Cheers

K

blimey, I can't even see the street! There was a brewery in Old Basford on Alpine St but by 1922 was Murphy's Chemical Works (still there) There was also a brewery in New Basford I think called Basford Brewery later took over by Shipstones just off Northgate, Craig will probably know

Hi

Please send me a copy.

I should be very grateful.

I am particularly interested in the Nottingham Suburban Railway and the LNWR Sneinton Goods Station.

Thanks in advance.
