    Central Market

    I remember as a boy, walking from Wilford Crescent to Central Market most Saturdays to the old comic book stall in the Market there to trade in US comics to further my collection, imagine buying for 2 old pence a copy of Amazing Fantasy # 15 - first appearance of Spiderman which now sells depending on condition (partly due to the movies) for between $8.000 - $680.000 depending on condition for that issue alone!!!

    The Rhinegold

    That picture brings back such memories, can't believe it still looks the same with the entrance door in the corner, considering how inner cities re-develop their central assets so quickly, just another of those Nottingham icons that in there day burned very brightly!

    Childhood Smells

    We used to live just above the Stoke Bardolph sewage settling ponds (Emerys Road), there could be a hum from there on occasion Remember many a tomato plant popping up there also from time to time this would not be far from the railway sidings back of Netherfield, great playground for a youngster I was at Chandos School at the time & the Cross Country we did always skirted these ponds, can't imaging that happening today, or the School visit to the Sewage Works themselves with the inevitable accident WTF!

    Netherfield then and now

    My Grandparents used to live on Forester Road in Netherfield, we moved from the "Medders" in the 60's to Emerys Road, continuation of Chandos Street & I entered the school there moving on from TBS on Green strret, used to play about the railway sidings there, accessed from Netherfield or from behind Emerys Road, past the Stoke Bardolph Settling Ponds & Quarry, collected a hoard of railway signs from the rolling stock parked there waiting for the end after Beeching cuts, Mother must have binned them at some point, as she was want to do - would be a nice little earner on ebay these days Doh!

    Curry houses in Nottm

    Having re-booted the forum to thread alerts I have been on in the past, I can now keep track of previous postings. Craig earlier on in this thread enlightened me to the name of my first curry experience being at the Darjeeling top of Mansfield Road, I even remember my first dish, it was a Chicken Danshak. I was at Clarendon College at the time & 17, there was a new guy in class down from Glasgow, moving into Nottingham who I became friends with who took me there I introduced to the finer arts of Indian Cuisine, being a year older than me, he was like an older brother & of course, being from Glasgow, which at that time, was already saturated in great Asian cuisine & culture. Though I am no longer cooking for a living, I sometimes work & consult on Scottish high grade weddings & functions, & being now after 40 + years very steeped in all the secrets of Indian/Bangladeshi etc Cuisine, it always seems that when dinner parties are called for it is always me hosting Lol!
  11. Just bumping this for the sheer hell of it, quite surprised really that this generated very little individual feedback, though did note that this particular class form had produced little response compared to others of that year! Another remembrance, the girl at the middle bottom front row, black skirt was called Teresa, a strong memory recalled that she lived around the top of the canal off London Road, apparently me Mum said she used to follow me around everywhere like a shadow, always with a runny nose apparently! Can re-name some names if required!
  12. Bathley Street rings a bell here, used to spend a lot of time around that street, Vince wasn't as well known to me as others, does he not recognise himself in the pic if you still see him? probably blonde locks disappeared as quick as mine over time! Was born the same year as me '54 of course.
  13. Hi A charlseworth, Sorry, but although I remember Vince, can't recall his surname, although lived closed to me, are you in this pic? Yes, I remember her very well, she was from the Ukraine, energetic fun-filled girl, very likeable!
  14. Hi Julia, just seen this post, I have a great memory from those days of yourself & Rita, if you ever come back to this site I will tell it & see if you remember, concerns my Mother who is long gone from this life! Like yourself, Olga & Salvatore were big in my life as school friends in those days!
  15. Hi Hoggie OMG I have just seen my name quoted on this forum, from yourself - did we know each other back then? I found that our class seemed to have the least profile on this forum for the year!!! in my class there was a kevin? Dunford, Kenneth Rust, Olga ? (from the Ukraine) - do these names ring a bell with you?
