Report Trent Road Sneinton in St Anns, Sneinton & Colwick Posted August 16, 2020 On 7/30/2018 at 4:08 PM, Mr Meeseeks said: From about 1910 to about 1957/58 My Grandad owned a Tripe Shop at No 70 Trent Road until his retirement. The shop started off as a Purveyor of Tripe but in later years more of a general groceries store, but still selling Tripe, Cow-heels and Pigs trotters. Across the road was Thurgarton Road Post Office, and on the corner the Chemist shop of Claud Manfull. Always fascinated by the coloured flasks of liquid in the window. Two shops up from the Tripe shop in the direction of the Dale was a Toy shop, spent a lot of time on my visits pressing my snotty nose against the window. never seemed to have the same toys as those in town. Nothing big just small items. I suppose it was 5 years or so after the war and business wasn't as good. Across Bleasby Street there was a brick wall and behind the brick wall a dark building which was St Stephens (?)Vicarage,, later became the site of the Jester. Down the hill from No 70, shop next door was never selling any thing although someone lived there. The Greengrocers on the corner always seemed busy. Great view of life when you were a nipper. I remember it so well,the vicarage was st.philips,used to go scrumping there too,think the tripe shop used to sell pigs trotters too,and the green grocers was grices,and don’t forget the barbers.
