  3. i knew george falconbridge ,he was in my class at trent bridge so would be around the same age as me,63.i used to be good friends with his cousen Jim carrier,he lived in the same terrace.A lot of school friends lived on bunbury street,i lived on kirkby street which ran across the bottom of bunbury st.if you look at old trent bridge school photos there is a picture of george in my class photo
  4. orange st ran between bunbury st and Arkrwight st, and Bell st ran off it .There were a few houses that were directly on orange st, arkrwight st end, and the rest of the houses were in terraces that ran off orange st., maybe about 10 houses in each terrace, and I think there was about 4 or 5 terraces, my grandma lived in the one nearest to bunbury st.
  5. there was also a pub called The Star. Midland station end of Arkwright of many of my dads old haunts
  6. the other chippy was the Robin hood.chips not as nice as Pete's
  7. Doe's anyone remember S.A. MONK on deering street in the meadows? They also had a smaller factory on Bell st in the meadows and one on castle boulevard.The main factory was in Sutton in ashfield.It was an engineering factory that manufactured industrial knitting machines.I started my apprenticeship there in 1968. Two years later we were all made redundant, as they closed the Nottingham factory's and moved everything to Sutton in ashfield. They employed a lot of people that lost there jobs.
