    I don't think I'm gerrin owd, I reckon I probably am old. I have photos of me as a kid with various of my grandparents. I'm now older than my grandparents were in those photos. That's when you know you're old.

    I'm increasingly having that problem with a lot of demolition sites around Nottingham. Broad Marsh bus station and car park have recently gone. Not only can I remember them being built, but I can remember what was there before they were built.

    Hi! Jackson, I thought I would like to reply with my similar fine memories of Aspley Library. With its green rubberised flooring and immaculate shelves of books to get lost in. I started in the junior section then moved on to the senior section. My earlier recollections of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn kept me happily absorbed for hours. I do remember a young girl librarian about the time you might have been in attendance and I would have liked to have the courage to have asked her out but, being of a shy disposition I regret now that I didn't have the necessary level of confidence to do so. It is very sad that the library we knew now has barred windows and a re-inforced main entrance (Google Earth). Yes, Aspley 'pictures', the shops, Mick and Olwen at Pinketts's , the snooker hall and the frothy coffee café opposite the library all bring back happy memories.

    The ugly 1960s building standing empty for years on Alfreton Road has finally been demolished.

    I'll second that Brew. Hope all goes well Nonna. As for the itch. It's still with me all the time but slightly less intense. Got my x-Ray results. All clear. Got the bloods too. Slightly anaemic, as ever. Raised bilirubin, as ever. On the other hand my eosinophil count, whilst raised, is lower than last time. Eosinophils are a clear marker for allergic response.. but you all knew that anyway... So lowered levels is good.. moving in the right direction.

    My mother-in-law, who worked in tailoring, always said when a bit of blue sky appeared, is there enough to make a pair of trousers?

    Having followed what is turning into a bit of saga I take my hat off to you for your patience. To say I'm not in the least impressed with your doctors is something of an understatement.

    No, much further up towards the City centre on the RHS just above Boden St. It was attached to the original mill factory, since demolished.

    Well I could make lots of grey trousers today (if I had the tailoring skills) but I fancy a nice blue pair!

    That picture reminds of back in the early 60's when Shipstones were clients of the accountancy firm where I worked. They still had the dray horses and I believe a foal was born around that time. The offices were very traditional and very 'pre-computer'. The books and records were kept in immaculate handwriting. The office floors were highly polished wood block parquet and it was impossible to move at speed without the danger of slipping. At 11a.m everyday a crate of ale was ceremonially brought into the audit room for us! I believe all the staff had a daily ale ration and the draymen would consume a considerable amount on their rounds!

    Remember Good Vibrations well. run by two hippy chicks. Got a card..which was stamped..when you'd bought 12 album's you.got one free!

    Good Vibrations almost opposite The Old Grey Nags Head. Still there when i last visited. Many years ago( early 70s) Ace Records was on Mansfield Rd..just above Richer Sounds but across the way- great for sixties US garage and surf punk...he relocated to Wollaton Street. ..he was a Ted..next to Stockwoods Cafe and Scamps. He is now in West End Arcade!

    HSR..when the Stones had had enough of Decca..they were obligated to provide one more single before their contract ceased. Jagger & Richards did so..Sir Edward Lewis in Decca House played the tape...and choked on his cigar!! (Have a play on YouTube.) too rude for me to paste on NS...craftily the stones reserved Brown Sugar for when they set up their own label..marketed by Atlantic.

    Correct HSR..Rob Smith ran it for a while, i purchased on red 12" vinyl- Co**sucker Blues and Brown Sugar..lots of stuff in cardboard boxes!

    This brings back a lot of memories. From Picture the Past, it's the record dept in the basement of Boots on Pelham Street, taken in January 1972. Around those times I spent a hell of a lot of money here. I'm amazed I'm not in the picture. Most of the record selection was off to the left, but you can see LPs stacked up along the wall at the back; the area on the right is books and stationery.
