    If you aren't on Facebook you probably won't be able to see this, but it's 30+ photos of the former Derwent Hall which was submerged under the dam.
  2. Did we ever establish - or did you ever admit - which ones are you and HG in the photo ?

    Query?? About Old Radford

    This one ?

    Query?? About Old Radford

    There are quite a few people here on Nottstalgia who are also on Facebook and know each other through that parallel universe.
  5. The only light sheddable is to say that there hasn't been a thread on the subject because - perhaps surprisingly - no-one has ever landed on Nottstalgia and wanted to mention Ald. Wm Derbyshire School. Some schools are more obscure than others - Cantrell Road for instance - but I admit I'm surprised to find Derbyshire hasn't come up before.

    How's your day?

    Nonna, I hope you and your husband get better soon. On Nottstalgia, you're in the presence of a number of people who are experts at dealing with medical conditions, and they all seem to come out the other side in pretty good shape, so there's no reason why you shouldn't join them.

    Highbury infants/junior school

    Welcome (again) to Nottstalgia Brut33. If you haven't found it, there's already a large thread about Highbury School and you'll probably find a few memories and answers to your queries.
  8. This probably wasn't it, but it's the best so far.
  9. The entries for Farrands in the early 60s are interesting. There appear to be two branches of the family, Edward and Frank Farrands, operating at the same time.
  10. Can you remember if you found it on PTP in the first place....or was it posted by someone on here ? Is it the photos here ? (Scroll down half way; there are several photos in a post by Nathan B. When you click on it, it automatically cycles between three photos )
  11. It's actually the Nottingham photos filtered out from Picture the Past. There's nothing new in there. PTP used to be Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, but they have now partially separated into two sites.

    Street Name - Bakerdale Road

    I'm not sure what is the correct version of the name, or who would know. As you say, most modern maps give it as Bakersfield (all one word); but it first appears on Ordnance Survey maps in the early 1950s and they always call it Bakers Fields (two words).

    How's your day?

    Combine the two - tell us your name when you appear at the next meet-up.
  14. The other possible didn't have a phone. Would that have been likely in the early 60s ?
  15. Sneinton Boulevard is there - just below the join in the list. As for Andover....this is approx 1962, so could it have closed by then ? I also looked for a similar list for Vernons - who I don't remember - but couldn't find anything. What years did they exist ?
