    St Patrick's Day

    Massive turn out good to see the city centre pubs packed & taking a few bob out for a change on a Sunday afternoon, queuing outside all the Market Square pubs, plenty of Guinness flowing, bumped into loads I'd not seen for years. Good day had by all.

  9. Sorry to butt into this, not being an old St Annswellian and all.... Ian's picture and subsequent comment are all correct, it's Alfred St Central, the post box in front of the Post Office, opposite Alison Rise, can be seen in the picture.
  10. Thanks once again Clifton, that's how I remember it. Don't suppose the map could be wrong though could it ?

    Old Streets of Nottingham

    This is OS from the 1920s. Not easy to see because I have to reduce the size to make it fit within this forum. Alfred Street North starts at Huntingdon Street and extends to Woodborough Road. (the first red arrows) Alfred Street Central goes from Woodborough Road to Union Road/St Ann's Well Road (second red arrow) And Alfred Street South goes from St Ann's Well Road to Carlton Road (not visible on this map).

    Old Streets of Nottingham

    Worked on the other side of the road from the pub, near the traffic lights the pub is were Alfred Street (spelling now correct0 North started, going down to Commerical Square St Ann's Well Road Alfred Street North (spelling now correct) went on to Woodborough road (cap W) then cross Huntingdon Street on to Mansfied Road I did not work on Alfred St (correct spelling) but I worked on Woodborough Rd
  13. Perhaps one of our cartographic members could post a map of the area from Commercial Square to Mansfield road to help sort out the matter for Mary.

    Correct Den or as some recumbent riders call them "Upwrongs" as opposed to "Uprights" Rog
  16. Sorry to be the one to tell you this Mary but, Alfred (not Alford!) St central went up from commercial square to woodborough rd. Alfred st North went up from woodborough rd to Huntingdon st/ Mansfield rd, case not closed. Just ask Mr G oogle where Clark's cycle shop was or Bob's spares was!!

    Musing on "Making ends meet"......

    That's the thing though, when your younger you only need a six pack, but when we get older we need more, so hence the barrel !!.

    My Bike rides

    Why thankyou Brew, I can and do ride an upright (DF) bike but the recumbent is more comfortable,can carry more stuff and I don't have to worry about balancing the thing when I go really slow up hill,not that there are that many hills around here Rog
  22. I've done a lot 'handball' loads. 22tons of bagged cement, as you say still hot - full 40' trailer of 1cwt bags of plaster - trailer full of McCarthy bricks from Bulwell - 2cwt hessian bags of sugar beet (they damn near killed me) - raw brown sugar in 1cwt bags, sticky and as rough as sandpaper - building blocks - concrete paving slabs... the list goes on and on all unloaded by hand. The beer barrel I now carry around my waist was once quite an impressive six pack. Thank god for palletisation

    Italian POWs

    I remember as a youngster visiting my auntie Ethel and uncle Mark who lived for a while in a Nissen hut on Colwick woods. I used to catch a sneinton dale bus then get off and walk through to the site. This must have been in the early fifties and the huts were used for temporary housing during slum clearance at a guess. They the moved to the new, developing Clifton estate. (I wonder if these huts were part of a p.o.w site?).
