    Club at Tollerton Aerodrome

    Yes I reckon you’re right Phil, I had nights out at ‘Tollerton Flying Club’ in late 60s early 70s. Had a coat pinched from the cloakroom there as well!!

    How's your day?

    Problem was Beekay, you fell foul of the city council's "Hate the Motorist" policy" ! Remember someone has to fund the tram. Scumbag council employing scumbag private car parking & enforcement company again. Hey Beekay perhaps you took a dive moving from Snapewood to Sussex ? Or perhaps you had to leave in a hurry ? Mesen, I don't live in Snapewood. I live in Bulwell & there's nowt wrong wi Bulwell youth ! Merry Christmas Beekay.

    Front or top loader, which is better?

    I would imagine that the idea is to agitate the water to wash the clothes. The dolly peg obviously through trial and error over years was found to be efficient at this so the electric washers just 'electrified' best practice. The current washer spins at 1200. It's been doing that for several years with no problem. If it engineered properly to spin at 1200 I don't see why you shouldn't.

    No wonder students put £millions into the local coffers (pubs & clubs) even more would go into the local coffers if they paid council tax.

    Club at Tollerton Aerodrome

    Can't remember seeing a name outside. It was run by a chap called Arthur (?) Bingham and his wife. His brother ran the Edwalton Hall Hotel. I'm seeing a couple of my old flying friends tonight. I'll see if they can remember. Edit. Just had a thought - I think it might have been Tollerton Country Club or the Tollerton Flying Club - not to be confused with the Sherwood Flying Club next door.

    Not only is the car wrongly titled..but the Street! Dryden St.is the hill in the background..Shakespeare St.running the length of the photo. The Alvis is surely on Bilbe Street which became Bilbe Walk when the new Engineering Dept was built.

    Front or top loader, which is better?

    Been thinking: Did the early washers have a vertical axis rocking back & forth paddle gubbins thingy to imitate the old 3 legged poncho thingy they used in a dolly tub? Then later on (1960's?) someone thought of the horizontal axis drum idea?..... Saw my electrical repair bloke (gave him a cuppa tea) friend t'other day & he said "try never to run your spin cycle at more than 1000 RPM, & even slower if you can, this will help the drum bearings last longer!" Luckily my washer can spin from zero to 1200 RPM in 200 RPM steps, also temp is from zero to 90 C in 10 degree steps..

    I thought it was an Armstrong Siddeley at first but it isn't. I know someone that has got an Sapphire which is STO 'low number'.

    It is a TA 21 (1950/53). Not all them had the eagle mascot.

    It's certainly an Alvis, must be a TA 21, so early '50s. I could be wrong but I don't think the eagle mascot was standard by then. I'm puzzled a bit by the reg number though. STO a Nottingham number but I would have thought that would have been issued a fair bit earlier. Perhaps one of the number experts will know?
