    The Old Market Square

    Well I would say it's a bit of state the obvious Mary, it's old, it's almost square, used to have a market on it & it was slabbed? I'm I correct & have a I won owt? What would you like to call it?

    Hucknall Highway.

    Strictly speaking, this is before Hucknall had a market place. The photographer is looking towards Church Square with the church in the background. What is now the market place was occupied by buildings and private gardens.

    DJ360, I can confirm it was unmistakeably a Lockheed Constellation with a triple tail plane and swept rear fuselage configuration. It was flying low on its approach and an image which is firmly fixed in my mind. What I cannot confirm fully is that it landed to transport engineers including one (Sir) Stanley Hooker. In his biography he mentions his flight to the USA in a Constellation flown from Hucknall but it is a convincing influence to suggest that this could have been the flight in question around that time. I would have to return to his book to look into this question further of the approximate date of this flight. Do you know where the hamlet was not far down the lane, (track) as I have described?

    Cats !

    Yebbut.. we don't usually do that 'for a living', and we don't usually dig up our host's flower beds, c**p on them and kill their garden birds. If we did, we'd soon be getting more than a splash from a water pistol!

    Buses in Nottingham

    Foulds didn't have a music shop in Nottingham as late as 80's. Unless you mean 1880's). They had finished in Nottingham long before I went into pianos in 1973. They just had the one shop in Derby by then, as now.
